Treasure trove of old mathematics exams!

My old maths teacher has retired, and is passing on some of his old resources to me, including a set of old exam papers from as far back as 1965.

For the record, question 1 on the Mathematics II paper starts with:

“Find the derivative, with respect to x, of:

(a) x/e^x (b) arctan(1/x) (c) lnlnx”


I’m hoping to use them as a source of test questions, but fear they may be too hard for the current generation.
