Informatics 2A: Past Exams and Solutions

Below is a selection of past exam papers for Inf2a, with solutions where available, in chronological order. There is also a list of known errors in these papers or solutions - if you discover a suspected error, please check whether it is on this list before notifying us.

Note that the format of the exams in 2017-18 will be the same as for those from 2012-13 onwards. Papers for 2011-12 and earlier have a different format involving multiple choice questions, although these too may be useful for revision purposes (and the format for Part B is the same). In the earlier papers, you may also sometimes encounter questions on topics that are not part of this year's syllabus (e.g. linear indexed grammars).
