    Could a specimen paper (written in 2009) have the same questions as a May 2013 real exam, like would they use the same question because it never actually in a real past paper? They're essay based questions with 24 marks.

    Probably not. The reason being anyone who'd done the specimen paper would have an advantage.
    This is not to say that a very similar question may come up, but not the exact one.

    I've done years old specimen papers in the past and similar questions have appeared on the exam paper I sat- it's good practice even in the likely situation they don't appear.
