Administrative / Biographical History

The University exam paper collection is comprised of bound print copies of University exam papers, dating from the late 19th century to the present day. The collection is not complete, as it is evident in some cases that papers were not submitted to be bound in the volumes.

If you are a current University of Glasgow student who wishes to view recent exam papers that are neither available online or held in these volumes then it is recommended to speak to your tutor for advice.


Arranged into series by degree classification, arranged chronologically within this series.
