Hello

I am planning to take my iGCSE English Language exam this June as a private candidate. I have no idea what it will be based on. I have less than 2 months to revise where should I start from?!

Any help would be great.

Thank you!

I'm doing it too.

Well, there is one anthology from the Edexcel English A & B book

One unseen text on which you analyse

And one creative writing piece

Hello,

I am sitting the same exam, also GCSE maths.

I am a bit stuck as to how to revise for english? I have the anthology but now what? As it is 2 years since I left school I have forgotten almost everything about english and that was at GCSE level not IGCSE.

What are you doing to revise and are you confident about the exam so soon?

Sam

I need to take a GCSE in English, I have found out about IGCSE. But how did you find a test centre? Can anyone tell me of a centre that will let me sit the exam as a privet candidate. Thanks

hi, for our english mock exam. (the one given before the final IGCSE which suggests the likeliest anthologies) were A passage to Africa from section A and The Last Night from Section B. I feel that they are quite likely to come up as well so revise them but you can never be too sure

You've stated that you're doing this as a private candidate and only stated language, so I think you can rule out Literature (Anthology) and just revise the Language spectrum.
