0486 (from 2015) - Can a student do ALL passage based questions or ALL essay based questions in components 1 and 3?

Candidates sitting Component 1 of the Cambridge IGCSE English Literature (0486) syllabus from 2015 are no longer required to answer at least one passage based question and one essay question. They must still however answer one question from Section A (Poetry) and one question from Section B (Prose).

Similarly there is no requirement for candidates sitting Component 3 from 2015 to answer at least one passage based question and one essay question, and the questions they have chosen to answer for Component 1 have no bearing upon their choices.

Thus, candidates now have a free choice in questions upon which they choose to answer – except on Component 2, where the concept of compulsory passage and essay questions still remains.
