Why don't the specimen papers contain questions on the set texts?

As set texts on Cambridge IGCSE Literature syllabuses are updated regularly, we do not issue new specimen materials for each examination series or set text. New materials will only be published if there is a change to the assessment or syllabus structure. The specimen papers available on the relevant subject pages of the public website and School Support Hub are intended for use for all examination series’ and may not reflect current text lists.

These specimen papers are for illustrative purposes to give a sense of the types of questions that will appear in live material. From these, teachers and candidates are able to identify the typical structure and formulation of examination questions in IGCSE Literature.

In addition to specimen papers, past examination papers are available on the School Support Hub to give a wider sense of the style of questions that may be asked in an IGCSE Literature examination. Teachers can also discuss and share their own mock examination questions on specific set texts on the IGCSE Literature forum on the School Support Hub.
