Answers to frequently asked questions
Final Exam and Past Papers
Please look at the Exam information for the structure of the exam and frequently asked questions.
We have made the following past MATH1002 exam papers available:
- Multiple Choice and Extended Answer Sections of the 2012 exam.
- Solutions to the Multiple Choice and Extended Answer Sections of the 2012 exam.
- Extended Answer Section (only) of the 2013 exam.
- Extended Answer Section (only) of the 2014 exam.
- Extended Answer Section (only) of the 2016 exam.
- Extended Answer Section (only) of the 2017 exam.
- Relevant questions from past (2009–2011) MATH2061 exams.
We will ONLY be releasing the official solutions to the 2012 exam, but students are encouraged to discuss solutions to any of the problems from the other exams on the Ed forum. Lecturers may also discuss the solutions to some of the other questions in their Week 13 lectures.
We strongly recommend attempting the past papers under exam conditions, without looking at the solutions until afterwards. Please note that the examinations in 2012–2015 had 25 multiple choice questions, whereas the 2020 exam will only have 20 multiple choice questions (still worth 50% of your exam mark).
