    Hey. I did CIE English First Language Extended without coursework as well, in November 2011 and got an A*. I can't tell you much about the Core paper format, because it's changed really recently, but check out xtremepapers.me for past papers, and definitely practice Summary Writing and your Analyzing skills.
    Also, focus on Narrative, Descriptive, and Argumentative essay writing. Feel fromm to PM me if you need any more help

    Hello. I'm going to take the extended paper this upcoming thursday. Can you please give me some tips and advice? I'm really struggling and I don't know what to do. I'm following the American curriculum at my school and I'm really not used to the IGCSE....

    hey i'm sitting that exam too. i would just say that the three different sections on the paper are transformative writing, PEE or PEA analysis and summarising. i would just say to have a look at the different techniques involved for that and to do some past paper practice good luck!
