If you require grade boundaries for IB exams, the please first check this wiki page to see if it has what you need.
Once you've checked there and you cannot find what you need, then make a request in this thread and someone may be able to help you.
The original content for the wiki page is taken from here.
Please post links to sites containing past papers in this thread.
Can I also take this opportunity to make clear that emailing past papers around via TSR will not be accepted. It is better for everyone if they are posted in the open forum.
MOD EDIT: There is a useful resource for many maths exam past papers/mark schemes etc. Please take a look here if you need maths past papers. For science past papers you can look here.
Those threads are now closed, so make new requests for maths and science past papers in this thread.
Mod Warning: Do NOT post your email address publically on TSR. It will be picked up by spammers plus we've recently had a spate of people having their MSN accounts hacked after being posted publically. If you want to share contact details then please do so via PM.
If you post your email address publically you WILL recieve official warnings which will lead to a ban from TSR
Please do NOT attach copyrighted files to TSR posts. By doing so you risk the future of this thread. Links ONLY please.

All these links were working when I posted this to the forum (26th February 2005 18:08). However, since IBO does not allow schools publish papers online, many were taken down. That is why you cannot access many papers anymore.
I found some papers on the Internet. So, download them, if you need. (These links can be also found in other threads).
However, I would like to ask you for one thing.
Do not post requests for papers to this thread. Only links to papers/sites with papers. Use other threads to ask for papers.

For searching for papers: try to put this to the search engine:
"until instructed to do so" diploma programmeAnd use as many search engines as you can.

Once I wrote little "guide", how to find papers on the internet and sent it to someone. But I think, it might be helpful for you. So here it goes:
Every paper contains sentence "Do not open this examination paper until instructed to do so". Every paper contains words Diploma programme. Almost every paper is PDF file.
So you take search engine and input this query:
"until instructed to do so" diploma programme
(with quotation marks). You can also specify that you want to search for PDF files (not necessary).
Then you find good search engines. Google is the first choice, however it does not find too many papers. You can use Google to find another search engines. Good search engines are Pandia (http://pandia.com), that sends your query to 5 or 6 another engines and sorts the results, msn search (http://search.msn.com) or SOGOsearch (www.sogosearch.com).
When you find a paper, then look at its address. In search engine you usually get only one paper from one site. And when there is one paper, usually there are more somewhere close. So, you take the address of the PDF paper and delete everything, that is behind last slash ('/'). Then you enter it to browser. Now let's take two examples.
a) you find this in search engine:
So you erase everything behind last / and result enter to browser:
You will see error message. So you will erase again everything behind last / and enter it again:
Now you get a page, where either are links to desired papers (not this case), or link to page, from where you an download the papers (in this example link saying "download physics material").
b) you find in search engine for example this:
you delete everything behind last / and enter it to browser. You see then directory listing. In that case it is good to go one or more directory up to see, if there are more papers. So in this case it is directory
In this case it is also good to browse everything on that server to see, if there are no more papers (on this site you can find also computer science
and some more subjects.
c) you find in search engine for example this
http://www.aselley.com/documents/exams/Nov00SLp2.pdf (does not work anymore)
when you try to use previous steps, you find either errors or no link to papers. In this case you can guess names of papers. Here they were for example these:
(you change level, paper or session). Sometimes it works (it did here).
Another way of searching for papers is asking other IBers. This way you can get to FTPs and sites, that are not available to public.

And I do not care about requests. Most of the time I cannot do anything about them.

does anyone have IB Music past yr papers? it'd be good if you could upload it on www.yousendit.com =) thanks
fyi. email it to yourself, and then you'd get a link.. then you can post the link on the board, and everyone can download the file.. (I think this would be an easier way to share IB past yr paper collections.. [zip it up] cos the IBO wont be able to shut these down, unlike FTP sites.)
maybe someone could start a collection of past yr papers, vade mecum(s) and syllabuses? =)
