They are not 'past papers' but the layout and content of the questions are broadly representative of actual exam papers.

Please read the Guidance Notes before you attempt any of the sample papers. The guidance explains how you should approach answering questions and provides an indication of the level of detail required in answers and references.

You should also ensure you are familiar with the subjects covered in the Syllabus for the various examination papers.

We also recommend you review the feedback and guidance issued by the DGSA examiners on the performance of candidates in recent examinations.
