Past exam questions

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by drbiology101, Mar 7, 2018.

    I'm new to tutoring and just wanted some clarification as to whether tutors are allowed to give out past exam questions? Does this fall under the educational exemption from copyright? Or are you not allowed to?

    Any advice appreciated,

    They're all on the websites.
    I use them all the time

    Anything that's on the website has no restrictions as far as a tutor is concerned. I wouldn't go publishing them in a book though..

    What do you do if students ask for topic-specific past questions, as opposed to complete past papers from the exam board websites?

    I print off single questions. It takes a bit of effort going through the papers finding them, but I know where to look because I've done it many times.
    It's part of what they pay me for.

    I expect my students to be keen and motivated enough to print out exam papers for themselves.

    They are the students that generally don't need private tuition! :) However, I am always encouraged by a student who comes through the door with a question that she/he has already attempted but has caused a problem/raised a question

    With the poor quality of teaching, in even the best schools, almost every student can benefit a lot from being tutored by someone like me. And, these same good students are exactly the ones who bring along questions that have caused them problems: and indeed I strongly encourage this.
