Faculty of Mathematics



Past paper solutions are not made available to students. Mark schemes for past exam papers are available to supervisors for read-only access from the Faculty Office, so your supervisors are your port of call if you want an attempt to be marked.

Lecture notes

Official and unofficial lecture notes exist from previous years for many courses. There is no central location for these, so we have collated some resources below. Bear in mind that course syllabuses evolve over time, and different lecturers structure their courses differently and choose their own notation conventions.

Unofficial sources of lecture notes:

Notes from lecturers' official pages are given below; * indicates a course that no longer exists.
