BETS Past Papers Services

Preparation Details

BETS is able to provide a past papers service to schools and colleges of all previously prepared papers.

  • All papers are provided on 11″ x 12″ Braille paper, comb bound and labelled.
  • All papers are produced on single sided Braille paper, comb bound. This makes the papers more accessible for teachers and others who may be reading the Braille visually.
  • A print transcript of the Braille version of the paper is generally available.
  • Diagrams are provided on swell paper (sometimes referred to as “Minolta” diagrams).
  • Where diagrams were originally prepared using the “thermoform” method these are NOT available as the master copies may degrade over time and accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

Our on-line catalogue is available for viewing and ordering using the link provided:

The on-line catalogue contains papers prepared in the last 5 years. Generally, we find there is little demand for papers which pre-date this as syllabi change over time, but papers are available from the inception of BETS in 1991. Please contact us if you require a paper which pre-dates the on-line catalogue.
