Hello,

Does anyone have a spec checklist and question packs for the topics? My school entered me for the IGCSE as well as GCSE to try and get an A/A*

for cie you have a fairly short non calculator
a calculator paper
and an investigation paper

the non calculator paper you dont really need to prepare its mostly free marks. the calculator paper is slightly harder, but you don't really need to learn much, it's just common sense. You might want to learn some set notation and circle theorem though if you feel a bit shaky.

The investigation paper is kind of a slightly odd paper, it's not very difficult though but it's a bit different to what you normally get at school. You might find it quite fun, try a few past papers on it just to get used to the style until you feel comfortable

I'm not sure which qualificiation you are thinking of but it's not CIE IGCSE maths.

CIE IGCSE consists of 2 papers and both are calculator papers. There is no 'investigation paper'.

EDIT: You're referring to the international mathematics IGCSE which is different to the standard CIE IGCSE.

For a checklist, do you need something other than the official syllabus? And do you mean past paper questions?

If you're just looking for regular questions then you probably need an IGCSE textbook.

I've been teaching the IGCSE for a few years now so if you have any IGCSE questions between now and the exam, feel free to PM me.

The CIE website has the syllabus and past papers.

Extended (A*-C) past papers will be any paper number beginning with a 2 or 4. So that's 21, 22, 23, 41, 42, 43.
