2005 - 2013 Layout 3 diagrams
Hi all,

Can any one supply the past paper exams from 2005 to 2013. I am looking for the complete papers to practice, specially module 2.

Kind regards

Past papers are available on the IRSE website to members.
Look under Membership/IRSE Exam/Exam support materials.

Unfortunately they only provide the last 5 years worth. If you know anyone who taken exams in previous years they may have copies on older Study Pack CDs.
Hi ACE007

I have it. Please see attached.

Best regards

Please find the rest

Hi All,

Thanks for uploading the past papers which have been working on, are there any model answers to compare with for module 2 from 2005 to 2013?

Kind regards

This was actually far more detailed than could possibly be done in the time permitted, so was aspirational rather than practicable. However there was also a real attempt (to an Australian practice) of I think 2005. I also included various other answer attempts on the DVD including one which deliberately had a host of the frequent "schoolboy errors" identified, so showing how NOT to do it.

Reuben has also posted a further fairly aspirational example, this time for 2009 at

I have made comments on Arnut's attempt at 2010 at and 2000 at

Dorothy has also certainly posted at least one of her attempts on this website fairly recently (2007 at as some other have done in previous years as well.

I haven't deliberately ensured that there is a very large collection since
a) file size is large each time
b) looking at a previous attempt tends to "give the game away" for a particular layout, yet actually just looking at a solution isn't particularly educational to the uninitiated so less useful say than Control Tables for a particular Layout 3.

That is why I decided that it was better to put a lot of descriptive text within the Mod 2 Study pack, firstly to explain the concepts and secondly to give some specific hints for a wide range of the layouts. I feel that there are enough to get the general idea by some particular examples.

You are however welcome to post your own solution of one of them and I will endeavour to find time to make some comments; I do have to observe though that time prior to the exam is strictly limited and reducing significantly on a daily basis now.
