    • Hi Beth,
      If your answers were managed being scanned into the screen, then yes. Otherwise, the examiner won’t be able to see your answers if they weren’t fit into the screen.

  2. ohh…but confirm your work would be seen if u clearly indicate where the continuation is and you label properly the question number

  3. Dear IGCSE Team,
    Other sites on the internet say that Zone 4 IGCSE results will be out on January 13th and that is when our school has informed us to come collect the results. However, here many people say 19th January. Could you please confirm?

  4. Hi IGCSE Team,
    I was wandering how exactly are threashold set? Is it like the average of everyone around the world?

    • Hi Frances,
      It is not “average”, it is being determined by the world scoring pattern. If you want to know the detail, you could write to CIE directly, or simply as your exam centre :)

    • Hi Khaled,
      No. Past papers are for your practices, and get a feel of how the exam would be. All exam questions are freshly made :)

    • HI Nicholas,
      Yes, there is a probability that any writings beyond the lines won’t get scanned during the scanning process. Thus, it makes your writing incomplete and won’t get awarded properly.

      • Our teacher said that often additional sheets are not marked so better fit your answer even if the words spill over…therefore i wrote beyond the lines:_(
        Will the additional sheet be marked

    • Hi Suzan
      I will advice you first to believe in yourself. Secondly do a lot of past papers and check your answers in the marking scheme this will help you to get used to the style of the questions. Thirdly if your exams are on May / June don’t think it is too far start prep from now . Fourthly make sure you complete all the necessity thinks in the syllabus meaning the required textbooks . Fifthly and most importantly pray to God so that He help you to complete your exams well and do your best .

      That’s from my point of view . Hope it helps 😃

  5. Dear IGCSE team,
    I was asking what if I exceed the word limit to 450 from 350 will my paper be marked or I will loose many marks in english paper 2 😢😢


        • Hello Razan,
          We have not seen the actual writing and how your teacher “cut” your marks. We are sorry we couldn’t comment on that.

          If you are referring to Summary, then yes, you won’t get awarded for exceeding the wordings. For composition, it is fine as long as you could finish all essays in time.

  6. Dear IGCSE centre,

  11. Hey
    I am an Additional Math student and I would give my exam in May/June 2016,
    I would like to know everyone’s experience, possibly learning from the people who have already given AM exams :)

  12. Was looking for French 0520 past papers for May June 2015, however every paper in that folder is actually Feb March 2015. I thought March exams were only beginning from 2016???
    Have you uploaded or received papers for this subject for May June 2015
    Please help

    • Hi Monica,
      March series is available every year, depending on the subject. We have fixed the French Foreign Language folder, the French First Language folder contains the May/June 2015 past papers.

  13. Dear IGCSE Team,
    I would like to know if it is compulsory to take first language Arabic if I want to study in the UAE if I am an Arab even though I have the american passport.

    • Hi Awab,
      It might be a good idea to call up the university and get their entry requirement. If you do not wish to do Arabic First Language, you can consider Arabic Foreign Language. We strongly suggest you to get the confirmation from the university before you decide for your subject.

  14. I would like to find out some information about IGCSE exam paper for chemistry:
    what the difference between
    1. paper 1 – there are paper11, 12 and 13 which one should i print?
    2. what is the difference between paper 2 and paper 3
    3. paper 2 there are 21,22 and 23 which one should i print

    • hey, you could print paper 11 12 13, no difference , just different structure of the same questions so that countires in diff time zones cant communicate and cheat.
      paper 2 is core, 3 is extended
      you can print any of them (21,22,23) cos theyre the same thing

  15. I am in Egypt. I am taking Math A Level : Syllabus 9709 P1 , P3 , M1 and M2.
