Can a degree be revoked??

I shared my old notes, assignments and test with a current student in my university. I forgot to highlight and scratch my name but he promised me to only use it for his purpose. As for the course material goes i have heard the assignment are changed every semester but not sure about test. I did it just so that i can get rid of my notes. Also i graduated from the same university and same program 6 months ago.

It's possible for a degree to be revoked in extreme circumstances, but I don't see how you did anything wrong - assuming you were allowed to keep a copy of your test and it's not a final exam that you stole from the exam hall or something like that. There's nothing wrong with sharing your notes and past work. If they choose to use it to plagiarize, they're the one at risk, not you.

Exactly, OP not to worry.
Circumstance I can think of that they revoke your degree is that they have proof that you plagiarize on exam paper or cheating on your exams. Even that, they probably need to spend a lot of effort to do that and not held liability in case you can bite them back.

Just relax.

Did you attend classes and tutorials?
Did you complete assignments?
Did you study for your tests and exams?

They can take away your degree but they cannot take away what you learned from the time you put in.
