Cambridge IGCSE Past Exam Papers

Cambridge IGCSE is 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 90% of Oct – Nov 2018 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.
  • We only have the Cambridge IGCSE past exam papers. We do not have any grade 1 ? grade 10 past exam papers.
  • Please read through all frequent asked questions at the comment section below before posting 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.

    I am very stress and my exam is after a month ,because its my 3rd time to reset my igcse I need to pass this time atleast I wanna get a minimum C.
    Please help me how to get good marks.

    • Hello Jassim,

      Practising lots of past papers is the key to success. ighlight the important facts that you think could be on the test (you should refer to the latest syllabus on what is expected during exams here: http://www.igcsecentre.com/cambridge-igcse-subjects-syllabuses/). You 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 you always seem to make. Pay attention to the most common mistakes you always seem to make. Make notes and revise them, so you can avoid making the same mistakes in your actual exam.

    Best Regards,

    • Hi Mohammad,

      For your information, we were not hacked. Someone reported our files in Google Drive. Thus our Google drive has become redundant. We are not able to share the files, and all the files are no longer be publicly accessible.

      We remind students to not download past papers at the last minute. 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.

  7. how do I enter the domain for past papers? as I got a message from here for me to access the gratitude access pack? how do I do this?
    with thanks,
    Varun

    • Hi Varun,

      Unfortunately, we’ve already terminated all memberships. The platform did not work properly. Many members encountered “Error” message. It cannot handle the demand when the limit is reached. Furthermore, our library of resources is unavailable until further notice. We are currently working on it but we’ve learned that there’s no quick fix for this. Kindly wait for our announcement in our newsletter. Thank you.

  8. HI !
    Please help me out with the past papers of pure sciences….
    I really need them..
    Why this website is not providing the past papers???
    Still please tell me name of some of the sites which provides past papers in a proper manner..
    If this site has to stop providing past papers publically than you people would have informed the users earlier ….
    So will this site ever be publishing past papers??

    • Hi Arpita,

      If you’ve been visiting our site last month, you’ll know someone has reported our Google Drive. Thus 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.

      In a span of a week, 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. However, even with countless sleepless nights, the platform did not work properly. Many members encountered “Error” message. The new platform cannot handle the demand when the limit is reached. In the end, we believe that it is rather unfair if we continue with our new platform when it does not deliver its promise of uninterrupted access. We’ve refunded all members and made an announcement here on our site.

      We are currently working on our library of resources however we do not have a fixed date on when it will be available again. We’ve learned that there is no quick fix for this issue.

      Furthermore, we always advise students to download all the papers at least months before the exam. We suggest that you google for alternative sources of past papers. Thank you.

  9. Hi IGCSE Team,

    Couldn’t you apply a few google email accounts and use it as alternatives when one of them went down? Some of the parents around the world would love to get past papers for kids to practice on their own, the past papers do help a lot. Hope the problem solved soon.

    • Hi James,

      Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently working on a new platform. Kindly join our newsletter for our announcement.

    • Hi Goyal,

      Thank you so much for appreciating our effort. 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’ve switched to a different platform but the platform cannot handle the demands.

      We’ve learned a lesson that there’s no quick fix for this issue, though we would like to continue providing resources at the shortest time. We did our very best to help, but it couldn’t be done in a short period of time. We hope you understand.

  14. Hi IGCSE team,
    I am really confused between AS and A level English General Paper (8021) and AS and A level English Language (9093).
    What is the difference between both and will taking general paper affect my overall scores or college admissions.

    • Hi Joshua,

      English General Paper (8021) is for AS level only. AS level can be taken as a stand-alone qualification. On the other hand, English Language (9093) is for both AS and A-levels. A2 exams and coursework are added on to an AS level, bringing it up to A level standard. For more information regarding the assessment options of AS and A-Level, kindly read this: http://www.igcsecentre.com/what-is-cambridge-international-as-a-level/

      Usually, the normal procedure is, you need an A-level or equivalent qualification to apply for university. Most universities require A-level and some might accept AS level entry for foundation courses.

I hope you will resolve the issue in the forseeable future and I wish you all the best. I feel sorry for you getting shut down because of immature and ungrateful students. May you please suggest any alternative sources for past papers for the meantime. Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards,
    Jack

    YOUR HELP WILL BE MUCH APPERICIATED!!!!

    • Hello there,

      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 you always seem to make.

        • Hi there,

          We suggest that you do targeted revision. Revise on the most common mistakes you always seem to make. Read and annotate your textbook for the questions you got wrong. This is because you won’t have much time to go through the whole textbook. Then, re-do those questions you got wrong.

    • Hi there,

      Paper 6 or the Alternative to Practical paper is simply an alternative mode of assessment to Practical examination paper. It requires the same kind of practical work in preparation as the Practical Examination paper. The syllabus makes it clear, in the Aims, the Assessment Objectives and Practical Assessment sections, that the course should be thought practically and that candidates should have experience of doing (rather than merely seeing) experimental work. The Alternative to Practical paper assess the practical skills, including both data handling and familiarity with standard laboratory equipment.

  20. Hello IGCSE team could you help me with my English ESL speaking which is on 20th April. your corporation will be helpful.

    • Hello Raj,

      Here are some Speaking tips for you:

      1. Pick 3 or 4 practice exam questions that are different from each other (closest to what is expected in the latest syllabus). You can refer to the latest syllabus on what is expected during exams.
      2. Prepare answers to questions that are likely to come up
      3. Find out how to pronounce the words and read them out loud.
      4. Learn your answers by heart. Learn your answers one phrase or sentence at a time. Select a chunk and repeat it to yourself over and over until you’ve got it.
      5. Understand and learn the questions. Look up any words you don’t know and learn to recognise keywords. Learn each question alongside the answer that goes with it.
      6. Learn two or three idiomatic phrases or sayings and memorise them. Go for sayings that could be used to talk about any topic or topic-specific ones that you know you’ll be able to use in the exam.
      7. Compile a list of topic-specific vocab that’s likely to come up. If you can, learn the gender of any nouns and the different tenses of any verbs. Learn the vocab so you can use and recognise it.
      8. Get a parent or friend to do a mock exam with you. Pay attention to where you slip up and then work on improving those areas.
      9. Make useful notes.

      Lastly, practice, practice, and more practice. The speaking topics will be different based on the zone you’re in. You can use other variants as practice as well.

  21. hi IGCSE team ,
    i am going to apper in this may/june , i wanted to asked about my english (0510) . As, we know that syllabus has changed we are going to have article writing , review writing or report writing as Q#6. my request is if u guys could tell me what kind of question will be there for review writing . for example me have prompts for aticles and reports, so are we going to have it for review as well or we are just ask to writing the book review on your fav book.
    thanks, i will be waiting for your reply.

    • Hi Aleema,

      For your information, we are not the exam board. But we can provide some tips for you.

      According to the 2019 syllabus set by CAIE (the exam board), question 6 would be to write a report, or a review or an article of approximately 100–150 words for Core and 150-words and for Extended, in response to a short stimulus. As such, there is no more fixed one format for this exercise. We suggest that you have to learn all formats: article, review, report.

      But before you begin writing, decide if you’re going to write about the topic from two sides (forand against) or from just one (your opinion). If you write a two-sided (balanced) piece of writing, remember to include your opinion in the last paragraph. If you want to write only from your own point of view, include it in the first paragraph.

      Furthermore, try to think of your own ideas on the topic which match the task and include them in your writing. For each of the ideas included in your answer, support them with evidence or examples. Note, the examiner knows that the evidence or examples will be made up and doesn’t expect these to be correct.

      Lastly, remember to organise your writing: include an introduction, a middle section and a conclusion.
