The proposed thesis is designed to be an online Baze University past question archiving system. The use of technologies has become critically important in the era of the Coronavirus pandemic which has required off-campus distance learning by students of Baze university. With no access to staff and on-campus facilities, the availability of easily accessible online study material has become critical. This project aims to provide students with the necessary materials needed to aid with learning and studying efficiently. It seeks to aid in distance learning by providing online access to past questions which have previously only been accessible as hard paper copies at the Baze university libraries. This web application has been developed using the Python programming language, its supporting flask framework and SQLite for the database. The application was successfully tested and produced the desired results.
