IGCSE Edexcel papers: whats the difference?

Recommended Posts

Paper 1 involves only multiple-choice questions, while Paper 2 consists of open-ended questions. Moreover, you are not allowed to use a calculator in Paper 1 (at least in Physics).

I sat the EDEXCEL GCSE Double Science papers but my memory of them are pretty hazy (blame IB). From what I remember, Paper 1 or 2 is the mandatory paper that all candidates must do, depending on their level (1 for foundation tier, 2 for higher tier). Paper 3 is the practical paper which assess your lab skills (e.g. questions on the experiments you did during your GCSE course, like what indicator paper to use to test for certain substances).
