Past Papers and Course Outline
All EMQE papers from 2015 up to last year are available via links below. Access to MS Teams will be arranged after you register for the preparatory course . Please note, there was a major change in the Leaving Cert syllabus in 2016, which was reflected in the syllabus for this exam, and so papers from before 2016 are not a good guide to either the content or the style of this year’s EMQE.
