Where to download ITIL Foundation Exam sample papers?


The ITIL® Foundation website has undergone a revamp recently, the information architecture (i.e. the structure) of the website and all the URLs have been updated. Previous URLs pointing to the ITIL® Foundation Sample Exams are no longer valid. That’s why it is now so difficult to download ITIL® Foundation Exam sample papers.

It took me much time to search for the download page. The good news is that Axelos still provides the exam sample papers for free. But Aspirants would now have to find and download the papers at the following URL:

On the page, you will need to scroll down to around the middle of the page to find the “Examination Format” section. There you will find a sub-section named “Sample Papers” and a link below in the sentence: “Practice for your ITIL® exams by testing yourself with these Sample Papers.”

Clicking the link will lead you to a page where you will need to log in before being able to download the ITIL® Foundation Exam sample papers.

If you have not previously created an account on Axelos, you will need to “Create User Profile” there.

Luckily, creating an account on Axelos website is simple and free (no need to ask for your secrets or credit card information). You will just need to fill in your name and email address only to complete the registration process.

A verification email will be sent to you to verify your email address. Afterwards, you will be able to log in and download one ITIL® Foundation Exam Sample Paper together with the answer key and rationale for the answers at the Axelos website below:

Actually, there were two Sample Papers in the past. Don’t know why Axelos has left only one there now. There are also many online ITIL® training courses that would have the official sample papers (historical and current ones) included in their exam prep resources package.
