I've been searching for the past papers from 1985 to 1987 (o grade, highers, six year studies). They seem to be nowhere online, anything before 2001 seems very hard to find.

Are they stored anywhere? even if you have to pay to see them?

Hmm have you asked your/a teacher? I know my chem teacher had the SYS papers back to the mid 90s kicking about this year, don't know about any older though. I'd say your best bet would be to contact the sqa directly by email or phone, although I suppose you could ask on the mySQA thread on here.

From before 2001, it's best to ask your teachers as they are most likely to have a supply in PDF files. If you say what subject(s) you're looking for, people may be able to share resources

Edit; If you're looking for the earlier papers for revision, then there may not be any point. The course will have changed in the past 30 years so the papers will be very different to what'll you'll face in this years exam.

The was the period I sat my exams I just wanted to see how they really did compare to my kid's exams, and they may be not as I remember.

Subjects would be
O grade: maths, arithmatic, english, history, physics, chemistry and tech drawing.
Higher: maths, english, physics, chemistry, tech drawing
S.Y.S.: Maths I & II, Physics

I know replying to an old thread but with the recent change to English GCSE which my daughter sat this year I went delving in my loft and found my old Scottish exam papers from 1983-1985.
