Past Papers and Examiner Reports

Past Papers

Links to past papers are shown below.  We recommend that candidates use the past papers to familiarise themselves with the format of the examinations, understand the scores allocated to each section and to practice answering questions.


Examiner Reports

The examiner reports are produced at the end of each examination cycle.  With effect from 2009, the reports for the Associate-Member and Chartered Member July examinations have been produced in one document.   The reports provide details of the pass rates for each examination, as well as valuable feedback from the marking examiners.  These provide a useful insight into the markers’ views on how the questions were answered and where candidates went wrong or lost marks. 
 

Answers to the Questions

The examinations are designed to allow candidates to prove their ability to design a structure to a specific brief.  There is therefore no one correct answer.  However, Dr Peter Gardner has included possible solutions to some of the questions in the exam preparation CDs that are produced annually.  Links to these possible solutions have been included under the exam papers for the relevant year.
