What are the changes to the 2015 syllabus of Cambridge IGCSE First Language English, 0500/0522?

The 2015 syllabus affects the structure of Papers 1 and 2. Paper 1 will now include a second passage, Passage B. The existing format of the summary question has been developed on Paper 1. In Paper 2, question 3 will be structured in two parts: notes and summary writing. On Paper 3, the discursive/argumentative writing tasks have been removed from Section B. For component 04, Assignment 2 will be called descriptive and/or narrative, removing the reference to imaginative. For further details and a comprehensive list of changes, please refer to the inside cover of the 2015 syllabus and to the specimen papers, available on the Teacher Support Site.
