  1. Dear IGCSE team,

    I was wondering when the Islamiyyat paper for Oct/Nov 2016 will be available, since the papers for the other subjects have been available for a few months now. Is it quite difficult to get hold of the Islamiyyat paper? Any clarification is much appreciated.

    Many thanks for your all your effort to get the papers online. This is a great endeavor. May you all be blessed abundantly for your hard work.

  2. Can someone pls help me with Chemistry rates of reaction question. I have my final exams now nd Im stuck in one of the question – 0620_s11_qp32 question 3)a)ii) How are we supposed to find the time in the table?

    In my Additional mathematics exam if I take value of 7.04 as 7 when choosing values between 7 and 7.1 .Will it be alright .Or I have to take it as 7.05 or both responses of 7 and 7.05 will be correct while marking a histogram.

    • Hello Ahnaf,
      As we do not have the question, and if we understood you correctly, if the answer range is within 7 and 7.1 , then your answer either “7” or “7.04” would be correct.

  4. Hi IGCSE team.
    I would like to ask you a help regarding the exams. Could you please, please, please give me any tips or pointers on how to ace in Physics and Add Maths examination. Your help would be appreciated.

  5. Hi IGCSE Centre,
    I saw there is February and March past papers, so will there be an exam going on in February and March?

    • Hello Ally,
      Yes, there is a March series examination which is only available in India. If you are not located in India, you must adhere to either the June or November series.

  6. i am just fed up! there are so many answers wrong in mark schemes that i many a times end up confused if i am doing the right thing. i just want to ask will marks be deducted even if the answer in the mark scheme is wrong


  7. For history and other subjects with answer booklets, they tell that we have to write the question number in the first column and the letter in the second column right. I saw that we need to write the number everytime before the letter (for instance 1a, and 1b..) today when doing eng literature. For history which i did a few weeks ago, i didnt write the q number for each question. I only wrote q1 and then a,b,c. Would this be fine?

    • Hello there,
      If your labelling is clear, examiner would be able to understand it. Don’t worry about it.

    • Hi Karrthik,
      If you are referring to the Economics 0455, the mark scheme is there. Please refresh your browser or clear your cache.

  8. Hi IGCSE team!!!!!
    First of all, thank you so much for the past year papers. It has been a great help. However, I do need a favour from you. Could you please, please, please give me any pointers or tips on how to achieve an A in Physics and Additional Mathematics examinations. I really need this to ace my exams. Your help will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Suprajaa,
      For Physics and Additional Maths, you need to practise lots of lots of past exam papers. Understand how to apply the theory into the questions.

  9. What counts as part of the scsnned page? Does anything that bypasses the L shaped parts of the pages at the corner not get scanned? Shouldn’t we have been told this if so?

    In histogram they always tell direct answer of histogram .My main question was that 3.04 is considered as middle value between 3 and 3.1 or can be considered as 1? I want answer from your guess .Please reply.

    • Hello Ahnaf,
      The middle value between 3 and 3.1 would be 3.05 – if we understood you correctly. You must refer to the question on what they want you to find. We can’t speculate what is the right answer if we don’t know the question.

    I have written 3.04 as 3 when choosing values between 3 and 3.1.So I am asking 3.04 will be considered as 3 or 3.05 or any one of them in maths histogram ,the exam which I have already given

    Can I take estimate value of 3.04 as 3 when value is between 3 and 3.1 in histogram.So please clear my confusion by saying that whether will I take 3.04 as 3 or 3.05 or both any one of both responses will be accepted. As I have written 3 in my Maths exam.

    • Hello Ahnaf,
      There would be ranges allowance in the mark scheme. So, please don’t worry about that. Keep going with the rest of your exams.

  13. Hi IGCSE Centre,
    I just wanted to ask a few questions. First, if my answers a little messy and I did a lot of scratches does that affect my grade? Also, does it matter is I exceed the lines provided for the answer? Lastly, what happens if they ask for two points for a certain question and I write more than that?
    Thank you so much!

    • Hello there,
      Here are the answers:
      1. As long as the examiner could read your proper answer, marks would be awarded.
      2. If it is not at the bottom of the paper, it would still fit into the scanned screen. So, examiner would be able to read your answers.
      3. Only the first 2 points would be taken as answers. The rest won’t be marked.

  14. Dear igcse,
    What can i say! U rock! Because of this site i gained 89%! all I can say is thanks!!!! i love you

      • Dear IGCSECENTRE,
        Just tell me that 3.04 always looks very close to 3.05. But still if I accept it as 3 when plotting points on histogram and if each line is considered as 0.1 on histogram . So what do you think 3 should be plotted close to 3 or 3.05 or 3.1. Or my answer of 3 will be considered as correct. Please let me know.
