Any quantity of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works can be copied or adapted without infringement as part of a question to be answered in an examination, or in an answer to such a question.
In this context the exam needs to be part of a unit's formal assessment process, not simply used as a teaching resource or a practice paper. This exception applies to copies only, not communications.
If an exam containing copyrighted material is subsequently copied or communicated as a teaching resource, adherence to the usual restrictions is required under the provisions of Educational Licences (Part VB and Part VA Licences, and the Music Societies Licence).
