Past Exams

The University hosts a centralised online archive of past exam papers. You may look at past exam papers from English department modules here, but when making use of this facility please bear in mind that the syllabus and/or exam rubric for the current year may differ from that for exams from past years, and therefore the past papers held in the archive may not be representative of the current year’s assessment. You can access the archive and search for papers by module here: https://warwick.ac.uk/services/exampapers?q=&department=EN&year=Any
