I’ve tried to avoid stepping on others toes, but alas, with my big feet I felt I needed to add the Physics Higher Past Papers and Marking Instructions (MI) as well as the PA/Exam/External / Course Reports.
These papers and marking instructions are reproduced to support SQA qualifications, please check the conditions of use and ensure they are not used for commercial benefit.

Below are the Revised Higher Past Papers, the content is very very similar to the new National (CfE) Higher, although the marks would be different. These were the last past papers with half marks!

These are the traditional Higher Past Papers (once also known as revised!) Remember some of this material is no longer on the syllabus, and some is relevant to National 5.

Thanks to Mr John Irvine for filling in most of the gaps in the Exam Reports, and to Mr Stuart Farmer for making it a full house, only a few left to fill. PLEASE can I recommend that both teachers and students READ the Report after tackling the past paper. The course reports give really good background and information about how candidates performed in the exam and what messages you should learn from them. Believe it or not, candidates often make the same mistakes every year! The reports are designed to help you learn from this.
Please also note that some of the National Higher content was once in the AH course, so it is worth checking these papers for some additional practice.
The papers pre-2000 can be found at http://mrmackenzie.co.uk/higher-revision/
I’ve added some info in here until Mr Mackenzie’s fab site is back up. Thanks to Mr Mallon, the originator of online resources!
