Visiting our archives and enquiries

Cambridge Assessment Archives & Heritage is based in Cambridge and researchers are welcome to consult documents in person, by appointment, with no access charge. As well as viewing archive documents, the reading room also contains some reference documents including examination question papers from 1951 to 2006, annual reports and statistics and literature about educational assessment.

Some archive catalogues are available online via the Janus archive project - a single point of networked access to archive catalogues held throughout Cambridge.
