What do I need to submit to Cambridge for moderation for Cambridge IGCSE First Language English, component 5 and 6?

The Speaking and Listening Test (component 05)

Component 5 of Cambridge IGCSE First Language English (0500 and 0522) is split into two parts.  The test, which must be recorded for all candidates, will take place during a period before the main examination series.

For Part 1 candidates have to prepare an individual task in advance of the test (for example, a presentation, a talk, a speech, a monologue) on a topic of their own choice. This will last 3-4 minutes and is worth 10 marks. 

In Part 2 candidates participate in a wider discussion with the teacher/examiner about the candidates chosen topic or theme.  This will last 6-7 minutes and is worth 20 marks. 

Dictionaries may be used to prepare, but not during the test. You need to send us each candidate's final mark, or the internally moderated mark, where more than one teacher/examiner is used, by the dates published on the Cambridge Samples Database.

In a separate despatch, you need to send us a copy of the final or internally moderated marks.

The Speaking and Listening Coursework (component 06)

For Component 6 of Cambridge IGCSE First Language English (0500 and 0522) candidates are assessed on their performance in three speaking and listening tasks:

- an individual activity
- a pair-based activity
- a group activity.

The individual and paired activities need to be recorded for all candidates. You do not need to record the group activity. The recordings of the individual and paired activities should be submitted to Cambridge.
