    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but here are some notes I took for my iGCSE English:

    Two papers - no coursework.

    Paper 1 is 2 h and 15 mins - consists of three sections: Section A, B and C.
    Section A is comprehension, section B will be something from anthology A, and for section C you will need to write with the goal of informing, explaining or describing.

    Paper 2 is 1 h and 30 mins - consists of two questions.
    Question 1 is something from anthology B and for question 2 you will have to write with the goal of exploring, imagining or entertaining. OR you will need to argue, persuade or advise.

    Basically just revise anthology A and B and you ought to be fine.

    No this actually helped me thank you😊

    You have 2 sections. 1 section on an extract from a book u have read (e.g. jekyll and hyde or animal farm) and you are asked questions in a limited time and you must give a structured answer. For the second section you write about a character from a differrent book(e.g. of mice and men) and this answer is slightly longer. You should ask the teacher about the different questions
    Also there is a poetry paper with an unseen poetry section where u answer a question about a poem you havent seen till the exam and also a question about a poem from the anthology which your teacher will give you.
