Cambridge International AS & A Level Past Exam Papers

Cambridge International AS & A Level are being offered by Cambridge International Examination (CIE) board from The University of Cambridge.

*CIE (Cambridge International Examination board) has its name changed to CAIE (Cambridge Assessment International Education) since October 2017.*

* Note:

  • Updated up to March 2019 series past exam papers. YAY!
  • “Specimen Papers” would be available when there is a change of syllabus for that year. Otherwise, “Specimen Papers” would not be available when the syllabus stays the same.
  • Please read through all frequent asked questions at the comment section below before you post your queries to us.
  • DO NOT download the past papers at last minute. We strongly suggest you to download everything you need at least 4 months before the exam.

In view of the recent incident (false report done by ungrateful students), our Google drive has become redundant. We are not able to share the files, and all the files are no longer be publicly accessible, even to people who have the link.

We worked 18-20 hours a day for the past weeks, trying to fix this issue by creating a new platform. Unfortunately the new platform has limitation and members would see error message when the limit is reached. Therefore we have decided to close the new platform as it is not working properly. (Members, please kindly check your full refund notification from PayPal. If you don’t see the notification in your inbox, please check your spam/junk box)

We suggest you to find alternative sources for past exam papers for the moment.

We thank everyone for your visits. We are still here to provide voluntary assistance to help you excel in your exams. Just leave your question at the comment box below.

  1. Hi,I just wanted to ask in how much more time woull you guys be fully operational?I really appreciate what you have done and would like to see past papers here again

    • Hi Ambar,

      Thank you so much for appreciating our efforts. We do not have a fixed date as to when it will be available again. But rest assured that we are working on it. Kindly subscribe to our newsletter for the announcement.

  2. Hi, first I’d like to thank your team for giving me, and most other students, this kind of opportunity to get free access to so many past papers all at once. You guys have truly helped countless people and it is unfortunate that this happened. I have a question. It seems that most people across India who have given the AS and A levels in this year’s Feb/March series have gotten very low grades. I do not know what happened. Keep in mind, I am not questioning the CAIE or the examiner’s capabilities. I am simply curious as to what could have happened. Do you think I should send my papers for rechecking?

    • Hi Kahi,

      Thank you for your kind words.

      If you believe that your exam results should be higher (based on your performance with your school), you should talk to your teacher. If your teacher agrees that you should request a re-mark, you will need to contact your school’s IGCSE coordinator. You may need a letter from your teacher to support your request, and in most cases you will have to pay a re-marking fee.

    • Yo Kahi, Wassup bro??
      According to what you said that you have performed good in the exam but a lot of your marks have come out low. This has occurred plenty of times, mostly when the exam paper is relatively easier so examiners check them strictly. This process is called de-scaling. In contrast, when exam is tougher than previous years, more marks are awarded which is know as scaling.

    • It’s the same with IGCSE, the papers were extremely easy and therefore the grade thresholds were much higher than usual
      Only the select few who knew the correct and accurate answers to those answers would get the top grades
      You can also make a grade curve in your head
      95% and above would be very less on the top right of the graph and the line would slope down extremely low after that
      I did really well in my math exam and I thought that I only got 2 questions wrong across both papers but I ended up getting 91%. Whereas a friend who only got 1 question wrong got exact 99%

  3. In my computer Alevels P4 examinatiom my gel smudged over an answer. I could read the code beneath the smudge, but will the scanner be able to scan the code properly. And is there any provision to penalised smudges in exam paper?

    • Hello Sam,

      One of the reasons why they discourage students to use gel pen is it is often illegible when scanned. If you believe that your answers are clear enough then the examiners would be able to mark it.

      • Can the scanner differentiate between the smudge and the written code? Like does it equally blacken all the writings or the blackening depens upon on the shade of black on the paper.
        In my paper the smudge created a layer of light grey colour above the written code, I could see the code beneath the grey smudge with my eyes so I did not give it much of a thought, but now I am really worried about this.

  4. You are doing a great job here.
    My students will be writing the CIE A&AS May/June series, I will still recommend this site for then to download past papers.

    • Hi Tolu,

      Thank you for your kind words. Our library of resources is unavailable at the moment. Kindly wait for our announcement in our newsletter. But we are still here to provide tips to help candidates excel in their exams.

  5. Hello Florence,

    Unfortunately, we are still in midst of creating AS/A-Level revision course and we do not offer A Level Model Answers at the moment. But we will submit your suggestion for review.

    We suggest that he prepare for his exams as early as possible. He can revise the subjects from the beginning. Highlight the important facts that he thinks could be on the test (kindly refer to the latest syllabus on what is expected during exams here: http://www.igcsecentre.com/cambridge-international-as-a-level-syllabuses/). He can then use the past exam papers as your revision. Start with the latest papers as they have the newest syllabus format and continue with the older ones date back from 5 to 10 years. Then, revise on the most common mistakes that he always seems to make. Make notes and revise them, so he can avoid making the same mistakes in his actual exam.

    • Hi there,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. Kindly subscribe to our newsletter for the announcement.

  6. You guys are the BEST. Thanks for all your hard work, for making revision so much easier and better for students worldwide.

  7. I recently wrote my physics paper and unfortunately due to less space i had to write my answer on blank page . I have mentioned the question number properly but I am worried if IGCSE will consider my answer on blank page .
    There wasn’t additional page only a blank page !!!!
    Will they consider my answer?

    • Hi Samkit,

      You may write on the blank pages provided within the answer sheet. Any blank pages that are used by a candidate in the examinations are scanned and marked as long as you properly label it.

  8. Dear IGCSE centre

    Thank you for all your help!

    • Hi Deetya,

      Our Google drive has become redundant. We are not able to share the files, and all the files are no longer be publicly accessible, even to people who have the link.

      We tried to rebuild a new platform where we aim to provide uninterrupted access to our library of resources, and to continue providing help to others.

We’ve terminated all memberships and refunded them.

      As such, our library of resources is unavailable at the moment. We suggest that you find alternative source for past exam papers. We are not the only website with past papers. Kindly google them. Thank you.

    This is sad!
    Google should investigate these claims so that we don’t make some other students suffer for the sins of a few.

    Thanks

    Thank you

It also serves as a binding agreement that you would appreciate and use the free resources with respect, without causing troubles to others.

  29. I have got 9*s and 3 As in my AS level just becoz of igcse centre..thanks igcse centre for providing the papers and helping me to get A*s and As…

    • Hi Nisha,

      Congratulations! We’re glad to be a part of your accomplishment. We wish you well on your future endeavours.

    • Hello Rihsiraj,

      A grade threshold is the minimum number of marks that a candidate needs to obtain a particular grade in a paper or in a subject.

      These thresholds are decided after each examination has been taken and marked. The aim in each year (or examination series) is to set each threshold in just the right place to ensure that it is no more difficult and no less difficult to obtain that grade than it was in the previous year.

  30. Just received my IGCSE results last month and I have obtained 11A* and one of which was a 97 for English as a first language! Thank you for your material and I would continue to use this website for my AS revision this year.

    • Hi Hiba,

      For your information, we are not CAIE. CAIE is the exam board. But to answer your question, Every year, the exam questions have slight differences on the level of difficulty. In order to provide equivalent A* achieving chance, the threshold is used to determine the grades for that year.

      You may write to CAIE and get CAIE to address your question.

  31. Hi igcse team!
