    Hi
    It is possible to study IGCSE Maths in 4 months! You should use examsolutions,hegartymaths and ukmathsteacher. You should also practice a lot of papers!

    The main core subject are Maths, English, Biology,Chemistry and Physics. There are plenty of youtube videos on IGCSE science. It is also worth buying the IGCSE CGP books for sciences. And also practice papers for science.

    Hope that helps

    So for example if you are doing Edexcel for science you should practice the papers they have given on the website.

    https://qualifications.pearson.com

    this is the website for edexcel type your subject in and you get the papers.

    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    I would like to do my Science Biology and was wondering if you book the exams for the students? Or if it is their responsibility.
