Provision Of Past Papers

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

Papers have been prepared in Braille only where there has been a Braille reading candidate for that particular examination. If a past paper is NOT available in Braille we may be able to prepare this specifically for your use. Please contact us for a scale of fees for such transcription.

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.

Please note that papers are only prepared for awarding bodies on demand when there is a Braille using candidate for that particular paper. If a paper is required which is not included in the catalogue it will not have been prepared by BETS. We would suggest that you contact the relevant awarding body as to whether the paper has been prepared in Braille by any other Brailling agency. Contacts for some awarding bodies are provided through the link.

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.

We have also prepared tactile diagrams with print labels for some papers. At the moment these are not shown on our catalogues or online ordering service. Should you require materials in this format please contact us by telephone or email to discuss their availability.

For more details see the Past Paper section of our website.

Transcription Of Candidates' Answer Scripts

BETS is able to provide a print transcription of candidates' Braille examination answer scripts. Generally these are provided as a word processed file.
