Cambridge IGCSE Past Exam Papers

Cambridge IGCSE is being offered by Cambridge International Examination (CIE) board from The University of Cambridge.

* Note:

  • Updated up to June 2017 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. Google Drive always has problems in serving during peak hour and during exam period when there are too many last minute candidates trying to download past papers. Access the past papers at Google Drive non-peak hours: 7pm-7am GMT 0 (please convert that into your local timezone). If you can see the rest of the page, but not the folders, that means you are facing problems in connecting to Google Drive at your area. We strongly suggest you to download everything you need at least 2 months before the exam.

* We are providing voluntary services to ensure all candidates have access to past exam papers at the soonest possible time. Please do not take our good will voluntary service for granted, and we would like to remind you that we are not obliged to fulfil any of your “demand” as you wish. You should be grateful that all the past papers are FREE and available for you to download easily.

  1. Hi Igcse Team,
    Thank you so much for your support. My recents are full of you from the past few months. However, may I have some useful tips for English Literature?


    Am asking if it’s possible for me to write Business studies and Commerce IGCSE at once as supplements??

    • Hi Benedict,
      There is no Commerce in IGCSE. If you are referring to O Level Commerce 7100, then you are not allowed to combine these 2 in the same examination series.

      Here is the note from Business Studies 0450 syllabus:
      “Candidates can combine this syllabus in an examination series with any other Cambridge syllabus, except syllabuses with the same title at the same level.
      Please note that Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International Level 1/Level 2 Certificate and Cambridge O Level syllabuses are at the same level.”

      You can download the syllabus here:

    • Hello Hassan,
      We do not have the 2008 past papers for ICT 0417. The 2007 folder you see is the specimen papers for other codes 0418. However, you can still use it as reference.

      All the format has changed with the new syllabus. The most important thing is to practice with the new format. Don’t sweat on can’t find any 2008 past papers.

      • Hi there IGCSE team

            Chemistry (Multiple Choice – Extended) 0620/22 45m Wednesday 08 November 2017 AM
            Chemistry (Core) 0620/32 1h 15m Wednesday 08 November 2017 AM

          • I found Only These codes
            My zone by the way is 3 and i’m sure that this is the only codes for chemistry. Does this means that i can take these exams.
            Please I need answer ASAP cause I didn’t registered yet and I know I’m late

            • Hello Omar,
              You must go to your exam centre / your local British Council / your school to check on the variant that they offer. Either 41 or 42, they are the same exams, with the same syllabus. You should not worry much about the variant. Just take the one that is available in your exam centre / your local British Council / your school.

              Please move and take action now to register yourself. Do not waste more time.

  7. Hi,
    My son is being homeschooled. I want him to sit First Language English (Extended), 0500. The listening and speaking tests are optional which is great. Is the Coursework Portfolio (Component 4) also optional? If not, would he be able to submit the Portfolio as a home educated pupil?
    Many thanks!

    • Hi S.Malik,

      The result will not replace the old one. You may choose which certificate to use based on the highest achievable grade.

  15. Thank You sooooo much IGCSE Centre. I mean, Seriously, without u guys i wouldnt have gotten such a good mark for my extended math board.

  16. Dear IGCSE CENTRE,

    If I choose Maths, Biology, Physics and ICT @ my Advanced Levels, will I be able to become a doctor or engineer?


    • Hi Monica,

      You have to make up your mind, these 2 are a completely different field and required different subjects. You might want to consider adding Chemistry and Further Maths in your subject list if you want to study engineering. For medicine, you also need Chemistry.

      The best is, check with the university entry requirement for required subjects.
