Description

What does the course prepare me for?

As well as preparing you for the examinations, there is guidance on many of the basics of English Language including:

  • Common errors
  • Punctuation rules and conventions
  • Spelling
  • Nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs
  • Sentence structure
  • Paragraphing
  • Presentation of essays

The main thrust of the course, however, is to prepare you for the examinations. To this end the focus on essay planning and writing in coherent sentences and paragraphs whilst employing a variety of styles and a wide vocabulary will be of enormous benefit to you.

What will be in the examinations?

If you have looked at the full specification on the Cambridge website, you will have noticed that there are various options including coursework. Please note that we will be preparing you only for the examinations options, Papers 2 and 3. These two written papers are the only papers you will need to take to gain an IGCSE. No coursework is required.
