“Hi, Nick,

Long-time user of your priceless past paper collection here. Just wanted to say thank you for putting this all together — it truly is a phenomenal resource for assessment. And as a tutor/teacher/human myself, I’ve used the past papers as a fall-back more times than I’d necessarily like to admit!

Keep up the brilliant work on all fronts,

Sam”

        That’s unfortunate, but by any chance do you have IGCSE CIE Chemistry 2021

      2. Nick Dale Post author

        Sorry, no. I have plenty of CIE IGCSE Chemistry papers, but not for 2021.

      1. Nick Dale Post author

        Yes, there are a few hundred on my site in all subjects, and around 10% have mark schemes/answers.

    Hi Nick, quick question for you. We are preparing for the Winchester Challenge exams this year. They have 2016 and 2017 on their website. Do you have other years, especially in Maths and English? Thank you!! Great resource

    1. Nick Dale Post author

      Yes, about 10% of the papers have published answers. You just need to search for ‘answers’ or ‘mark scheme’ in your browser (Ctrl-F or Cmd-F).

    Hello please do you have ISEB common entrance past papers from 2015 to 2020 – ideally for Maths and English.
    Would you also have the mark schemes if these are available.
    I’d be happy to then subscribe.
    Thank you

    1. Nick Dale Post author

      Yes, I have 2017 Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Science papers and mark schemes and Maths Level 1, 2 and 3 papers for 2015, but all the others are for previous years, I’m afraid.

    Quick question: I count 49 schools on your list; is that an exhaustive list of the school papers you provide? Thanks

    Reply
    1. Nick Dale Post author

      I don’t know which list you’re talking about, but the one on the Past Papers page of my website has 89 sources, including schools and organisations such as ISEB.

        Sorry the list you have here on this page, there were only 49 schools so I was confused. Thank you!! One last question please: How far back in time do you have papers for Haberdasher Aske boys school? Thanks Nick!!

      2. Nick Dale Post author

        It varies by subject and level, but the earliest Haberdashers’ Aske’s paper is from 2009.

    HI,what papers are available at 11+ level, are they mock papers prepared by you or your team or papers from other publishers such as cgp etc. Thank you,

    1. Nick Dale Post author

      They’re all collected from school websites and other publicly available sources. Where available, I’ve also uploaded the answers or mark scheme.

    Hi Nick,

    Are there any answers available for the 11+ Verbal Reasoning Test 1 to Test 5?

    Regards

      Sorry, but I’ve published all the available answers. All you can do is ask me to mark them for you, but that would cost £70 an hour.

      Reply
    1. Nick Dale Post author

      Yes, I update the latest paper for all the schools every year and find a few more, so the total number went up from around 1,700 to over 2,000 in the last few months alone.
