Would the exam paper be the exact same as those who sat it first time round?

No.
I've heard of someone deferring and I wanted to make sure they wouldn't have an advantage compared to other students. Are you sure this rule applies to every uni that the exam paper will be different?

When you defer an exam, it's usually deferred to the next sitting. E.g. the resit diet.

New papers will be created by then.

If you want definitive policy wording, check your university website.

Yeah that's true but our uni states that either it will be the next resit date or "a special sitting".

Surely the "special sitting" say a couple weeks after the original exam won't consist of the same exam paper.

Universities are not stupid, they know students could give another student the questions. So no, they won’t be the original exam paper, it will be different.

Nope, as the real exam at the end of the semester. The exams had questions from last year in them. But this happened in Year 1.

Maybe in year 2, they will change the questions.

Okay. You do have to provide sufficient evidence if you’re going to be ill for an exam, so there’s not many ways of playing the system entirely.
