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.

      We are still working on fixing our library of resources. We suggest that you search for alternative source of past papers. Thank you!

  1. Greetings.

    1. I am an exam officer. My students want to know what range of marks come under each Grade from A* to G.

    2. Is there a possibility for a student to check out his papers if he or she wants to.

    • Hi George,

      To answer your questions:

      1. Each year has different marks for each grade because 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.

      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.

      2. You can refer to past papers for the grade threshold. For more information regarding the marking process, kindly read this article: http://www.igcsecentre.com/guide-to-the-marking-and-grading-process-of-exam-papers/.

      No one would get back their exam papers. Students may apply for re-marking if they feel that they should obtain higher marks.

  2. Hi

      Lastly, you can revise the subjects from the beginning. Highlight 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.

        • Hello Rashid,

          You may download the mark scheme as the mark scheme is the marking guideline examiners used to mark your papers. Furthermore, you may apply for re-marking if you feel you should obtain higher marks. Please apply the re-marking with your exam centre.

  3. Hi. Is there a site to see the mark schemes + past papers for the 2019 May/June Examination Series IGCSE?

    Will these be released on a seperate date to the results release date?

    Thank You.

    • Hi Sahran,

      Checkpoint exam is only available in Cambridge School for schooled candidates. If you are a private candidate, this exam is not applicable to you, as it is not available for private candidate. However, if you are a schooled candidate and if your school is a registered Cambridge School, you must abide to your school’s Checkpoint exam procedures.

  11. Hi,
    My results will be released in August will, it shows me my percentage of each subject or just the grade?
    Thank you

    • Hi Yousef,

      The Statement of results lists all the syllabuses you have entered and the score results you have been awarded. Furthermore, the numbers shown in a bracket is the percentage uniform mark (PUM). 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.

  12. hi IGCSE Center,
    I really miss your uploads. They were a great help to me all these years. Hope you’d be back soon. Thanks for everything.

        • Hello Jan,

          First of all relax and take some deep breaths. Meditate, practice yoga, exercise, listen to music, play video games or do whatever that makes you feel calm. Believe in yourself and your abilities. Realise your own expectations, what would you be happy with. Do something you enjoy and be productive. Lastly, don’t miss out on happy moments with worry about your results.

  16. 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.

  20. 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: http://www.igcsecentre.com/cambridge-igcse-subjects-syllabuses/ ).

      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.

      Tips:

      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.

      You might be interested with our exam model answers. Model Answers are sample A* answers for past exam papers. You would see what kind of answers you need to write in order to score A*. Model Answers consist of step-by-step workings which you can’t find in mark scheme. For more information, kindly read this page: http://www.igcsecentre.com/igcse-exam-resources/

  21. Good evening, will marks be deducted for the hand writing in the (0544) papers.
    And is there additional marks given if the hand writing is neat.
    THANK YOU!!!

    • 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.

  22. Good evening, may I request when will the IGCSE physics MS be back I need them concerning reviewing my solutions, bless you!

    • Hello Wail,

      We do not have fixed date as to when it will be available. We suggest that you search for alternative sources. We are not the only website with past papers. Kindly google them. Thank you.

    • Hi there,

      We are still fixing it. However, we do not have fixed date as to when it will be available. Kindly subscribe to our newsletter for the announcement. Thank you for your patience.

    • 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: http://www.igcsecentre.com/cambridge-igcse-subjects-syllabuses/.
      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 (http://www.igcsecentre.com/cambridge-igcse-subjects-syllabuses/) to get a better idea of what is expected.
