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 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.
  • 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.

    • Hello Devis,

      The percentage is shown on your Statements of Results. Percentage uniform mark (PUM) corresponds to the grades available (A*, A, B, C etc.) and gives students additional information about their performance. It shows your percentile, not the total mark achieved for the syllabus. It is a point on a common scale for all syllabuses to show whether the candidate’s performance is close to the top, middle or bottom of the grade.

  1. Hi,
    I have two questions in english(0500):
    1)In paper 2 when writing descriptive writing is it ok to narrate the story but describe as well.
    2)Do you have any nice tips for writing a narrative?
    Your help would be really appreciated.

    • Hello Bob,

      Even narrative needs description. You need to help your reader imagine characters and places by adding significant details to bring them alive.

      Here are some narrative composition tips:

      – Decide on a tense and then stick to it; do not jump between present and past. The normal narrative tense is past and those who try to write in the present usually forget to do so after a while, so it is safer to start off in the past.
      – Know what your last sentence is going to be before you write your first. A narrative has to build up to a climax and lead towards a conclusion which is planned before it starts or it will end lamely or incomprehensibly, or the pace will be too slow or too fast.
      – Don’t try to do too much; you can’t cover many events and many years in one short composition. Select key moments and skip over the rest, changing the pace according to the intensity of the moment.
      – If you do use dialogue, find synonyms for ‘he said/she said’
      – Use plenty of interesting details to engage your reader and make them want to read on.
      – End your narrative deliberately. Stories need a conclusion, where things are either resolved or purposely left unresolved as a cliff-hanger (though on the whole readers prefer to know how a story ended). You must not give the impression that you just stopped writing because you ran out of time, ink or ideas.

  5. Hi may I ask if u forgot to shade the Candidate number in the MCQ answer sheet is it okay even though the numbers are already printed? I only signed my paper i didnt shade it because the teacher didnt instruct us to do so

    • Hello Sabrina,

      They may be able to trace you with your printed name and candidate number. There’ll be just a minor issue because MCQ papers are scanned and checked by the computers.

      If you would like to clear this issue, we suggest you to talk to your school as we do not know how was the printing like, and thus can’t provide any further suggestion.

    • Hello Riya,

      With Maths, you’ll need a lot of practice.

      1. Learn and understand the key concepts and formulas. Familiarise/memorise the key equations/formulas (refer to the latest syllabus on what is expected: ).

      2. Do revision based on the latest syllabus and practice with the latest past exam papers. 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.


      Minimize your reference checks. Try solving a problem with the formula without looking it up. You MUST do this as many times as you can. You will be able to remember the formulas/key equations better when you repeat this step.

      Show your working. You may get some credit even if your answer is wrong. Writing down your working can also help you to spot errors you have made.

    And is there additional marks given if the hand writing is neat.

    • Hi Yunus,

      There’s no penalty for poor hand writing and there is no additional marks given for good handwriting. As long as your answers are legible and are clear to read, the examiners will mark it accordingly.

    • Hi Adityaraj,

      Here are some tips in studying for French exams:

      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 here:
      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. Use our past exam papers to practice and refer to the syllabus ( to get a better idea of what is expected.
