A New Series About Exam Tips -- KNOW YOUR PAPER

With CIE, there are variations on the English Language exam, so it's important for successful revision that you KNOW YOUR VERSION.

This guy hasn't got a clue -- have you?

First of all, it's very simple to say, but are you sure which exam you're sitting? My blog posts will be about the CIE English Language iGCSE 0500 exam, higher tier.

Are you doing Higher Tier, or Foundation?

Both of these exams take the third paper, sometimes known as the "writing exam" where you will be graded on skills like story-writing or description, and will be designated by a 3 at the end, such as 31 or 32 or 33.

If you're doing Higher Tier, then you also are sitting the second paper, sometimes known as the "reading exam". This one comes in three sections, the third of which comes in two parts, and this one will be called 21 or 22 or 23.

Foundation Tier has a "reading exam", too, but it has more guidance in its answers, and will be designated by a number 1 such as 12 or 11 or 13.
