    Is anyone doing the English First Language IGCSE (Exam board: Cambridge International Examinations) this summer? I am because I started my English Language GCSE in yr 9 and completed it last yr and got a C and am now doing a one yr IGCSE to get a B or an A.

    If you are doing it, how are you revising for it as I have no clue on what to do for this thing.

    Hey I am doing my igcse this year too and I'm pretty good in English what I do is I read a lot of books or magazines to build my vocabulary also do go through pastpapers to see the format of questions and there is no hard and fast formula for English all you can do is let your creative side takeover

    Hey, I just finished my English First Language IGCSE (Nov 2012).

    It is one of the most underestimated subjects in the IGCSE level.
    The examiners are pretty strict.
    I barely scraped an A (82%), I was an A* student in class.


    Good vocab isnt always enough.... You also need a perfect mix of structure, writing flow and clear sentences. I recommend planning out your stories/essays/writeups. And watch out for the time, it flows when you really need it.
