To prepare for the exams, please remember two main rules: Plan and Play.

  1. Plan your revision. Design your revision timetable.
  2. Play with information: practice questions, keep notes, restate the key ideas in your own words, and write them down. Do not rely on just reading without processing the information in writing, drawing charts, creating tables and lists, etc.

We strongly recommend adopting the 5 Steps Notes System as a proven tool to master any syllabus in the fastest possible way with the highest retention rate.

Please study Syllabuses and Learner Guides for the most popular Cambridge IGCSE and AS & A level subjects to find out what Cambridge will expect in to see in your answers and how to prepare for the exams effectively.

On exam day, plan to arrive around 30 minutes before the start of the exam. To bring:

  • Identification Document you provided in the Registration Form
  • Statement of Entry
  • pens and pencils (in a transparent pencil case)
  • scientific calculator
  • any extra equipment needed for your subject (please check the subject syllabus)

No mobile phones or other electronic devices (except those mentioned as required in the exam syllabus) are allowed in exam rooms. Unauthorized use of electronic devices will automatically lead to canceling your exam with no refund. Please read the important information about the security of our exams.

During the test, take three deep, slow breaths. Move on to the next question if you don’t know how to answer. If you have free time, check all your answers.

There are three stages to receive your results:

  1. Online using the Cambridge CandidateResults service – usually available two and half months after you finish your exams. We will send you your username and password.
  2. The Statement of Results is available for collection two weeks after the release of your online results.

You may re-sit for the exams as many times as you wish if you are not happy with your result. However, some universities can trace your records, and many resits may create a problem. Although most universities will require at least C, the top universities will consider only A and A*, which is perfectly achievable with proper preparation. So, start your preparation as early as possible. Today.
