Exam Papers into Google Classroom

Past papers are a useful tool to use with students, both in class and for homework  – but almost always they come as a PDF file from the exam board, which makes them difficult to use online. Thankfully Google Drive can convert them and then Google Classroom can assign them to your class.

1. Upload the paper to Google Drive.

2. Right click then open with Google Docs (which converts it to a Google Doc Format)

3. To avoid confusion at this stage I suggest renaming the file (otherwise you will have two identical files with .pdf at the end, one of which is not a PDF)

4. Now over in Google Classroom – this file can be assigned to a class (I suggest you select “Make a Copy for Each Student”)
