So you've completed the NCA sample exam but you would like more practice. Where do you find more practice exams and should you even attempt to do practice exams outside of the one's offered by the NCA?
My answer to this question only relates to the 5 core NCA subjects. It is important to test your skills with practice exams as they help you practice your timing on the exam and also give you an opportuntity to test out the notes you've created for the exam.
Where you can find them?
You may find practice exams by visiting different law school websites. Some have databases with past exams for at least the last 7 years. UBC Law Library has a great repisitory which can be found here.
You should be cautious when attempting practice exams from other law schools. Try and and use the most recent practice exams as laws are constantly changing and old exams may be testing an area of law that has been repealed. I do not recommend attempting practice exams for administrative law as the exams offered by the law school focus mainly on provincial procedural statutes. Since the NCA administrative law exam is the same exam which is sat for all of the provinces, the exam does not focus on a particular province's procedural statute. Therefore, past exams from other schools may be testing areas that you're not familiar with and it will be hard for you to discern which questions were designed to test your knowledge of the statutory law and which questions are intended to test you on the common law principles.
Generally speaking, you can use past exams for constitutitonal law, criminal law and in some casese ethics as they test the same concepts on the NCA syllabus.
