All the other boards want you to know about Linear Search, Binary Search, Bubble Sort, Merge Sort etc.

These are not mentioned in the Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science syllabus.

Does this mean students don't need to study them for the exam? Seems a bit odd...

If it's not on the syllabus then it's not on the exam lol. Different exam boards sometimes do weird **** like that, just take it as a privilege as I did GCSE OCR computer science and found search and sort algorithms a pain to remember. If you're not sure then read through the official syllabus and if they're not there then they're not there. You could still learn then if you feel so compelled but it would probs be a waste of time
