    This thread is for all Edexcel IGCSE students and Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in English Language students sitting their English language (A) exam in the May 2012 examination series.
    Paper 1 which is for 2 hours and 15 minutes is on the 25th of May 2012 - afternoon.
    Paper 2 which is for 1 hours and 30 minutes is on the 29th of May 2012 - afternoon.

    All those sitting this examination series will have to revise all the anthologies in both section A and section B.

    I am also sitting this same examination series. I thought of creating a poll where all the students all over the world for this May 2012 can help each other. Vote honestly the anthology you think will come in paper 2. Like this all of us can know what the majority of students in the world think will come and we can get more prepared. The below poll is just for paper 1 (due to the limited options available) the poll for paper 2 will be found in another thread please also vote for paper 2 in the other thread. Please search for that thread after you have finished voting here it has the same title.

    Warning - Please don't use the poll results to think that anthology will definitely come in the final exam. This is only a poll based on opinions, the votes may or may not come true. Read all the anthologies for the finals !!! Edexcel ltd has not endorsed this poll in any way. This poll is intended to just get opinions of those who are sitting the May 2012 exams and not try to sabotage exam content. Please be aware of these conditions when voting and try to vote only if you are sitting the Jan 2012 Edexcel IGCSE exam or the May 2012 exam. This vote is only applicable to Edexcel IGCSE and Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in English Language students strictly!!! Don't vote if you do another examination from another examination body e.g. CIE

  4. Offline

    Well I don't have all the section B anthology notes but I can help you out with some like the last night, a hero, etc... I can send you them via e-mail. Contact me on my e-mail so I can send you the notes. Also go to this link - http://mrtelfersenglishpage.wikispac...GCSE+2011-2012 you will find notes for all Section B anthologies but only disabled is uploaded. Hope they upload the rest in time before our May 2012 exam.
    Frankly speaking there are not many sources for us to get notes from and that's the worst thing.

    I don't know why but I have an inner feeling that keeps telling me "a passage to Africa" will come in May 2012 paper 1 English (A) exam. This is because passage to Africa is the most complicated and hardest. Well let's wait and see what comes.

    I (the pioneer of this thread) haven't force you to vote. If you feel it's a waste of time you can stay out of it. This is for people who are willing to vote and not criticizing it.

    They added a new colour text , a webpage based on climate change .
    Maybe a colour text would come this year to wade off all the doubts. It would perhaps be black and white ( with a colour code)

    No, no they can't bring that - I'm a little sure. It would be very unprofessional if Edexcel gave a coloured extact in black and white with a colour code. That can't be. By the way which country are you from? And can you give me notes on the coloured webpage?
