# IGCSE question watch

1. Hi I'm doing IGCSE's next year may/june with the exam board edexcel, could I revise from edexcel GCSE books for edexcel IGCSE?
2. They mostly have similar topics but 28 of the linear GCSE topics are omitted from the IGCSE.
Omitted topics

These topics are included in the GCSE, but are not included in the Level1/Level 2 Edexcel IGCSE Certificate in Mathematics. It is essential that you don’t invest time revising aspects of the normal curriculum that you don’t need to revise. ·
