    The only place I am aware of that openly offers past papers is City University:

    http://www.staff.city.ac.uk/~sbbb698/pastexams.html

    But other university past papers may not be the best option as they will vary a little between university. You should have access to your own university's past papers.

    Just look at the course contents of the uni of your choice.

    Hey,

    Focus more on the course content rather than the exam questions. Most people end up tripping up in exams because all they learn is example questions, whether it's homeworks/class examples/past paper questions. Learning the theory will prepare you for any question.

    The main caveat with looking at past exam papers is that exam questions can vary wildly year to year, particularly if there is a change of lecturer. Of course, it can be good to see how the exams are setup and the type of questions they can ask, but it's just something to keep in mind.
