SQA Past Papers

Exam past papers for the last 3 years. Marking instructions also available so you can see what the examiners are looking for in your answers.

Save paper by working from screen or copying and pasting relevant questions into a Word document before printing out. Remember – you don’t do the whole exam paper, therefore don’t need all of it.
