Exams and assessments

Talk to your unit coordinator if you have any queries about examinations or assessments in your subject.

Selected past examination papers are made available in electronic format through OneSearch.

OneSearch has a separate Examination Papers tab which can be searched by keyword or Unit Code; for example you could search for "accounting", "ACCT2203", or "ACCT*" to retrieve relevant examination papers.

You must be signed in to OneSearch as a UWA staff or student to access examination papers.

Examination papers go back as far as 2005 for some units in OneSearch, with the majority of units going back at least 5 years. However, not all exam papers are made available for use by the Examinations Office. Restricted exam papers have been marked as not for publication in OneSearch.

Past examination papers are identifiable by their course codes. In recent years course codes have changed from a six-digit numerical format (such as 150.101), to an eight-digit alpha-numerical format (ANTH1101). Old course codes are available in the course information printed in the Undergraduate Handbook.

Previous semester examination papers will only be made available online once all supplementary and deferred examinations for that semester have been completed. Supplementary and deferred examinations take place approximately two months after the end of the standard examination period.
