Change of IGCSE Syllabus from 2015

There are many changes to the syllabus for all subjects for year of 2015 onwards for International School Syllabus IGCSE. For those who are taking their examinations in 2016 please be very clear of which papers you are taking and which subtopics are added into the syllabus. Make sure your teacher and tutor are fully aware of the change of syllabus and there will be no surprises during the paper itself. 

I will briefly explain the changes for Sciences which includes IGCSE Physics Chemistry Biology

#1.  Format of Papers
It will change to Paper 2 Paper 4 and Paper 6. Most of the students who are currently taking sciences IGCSE for now are in the advanced level (not core) are taking Paper 1 Paper 3 Paper 6 in Malaysia International Schools. What does all these means? CIE has decided to increase the difficulty of the papers whereby students will be taking Paper 2 and Paper 4 which has higher difficulty than Paper 1 and Paper 3. Paper 1 and Paper 3 IGCSE will be reserved for students taking core. 
i upload this because some people commented below my information is inaccurate.
please do research and some people really need to stop calling themselves experts.

#2. Changes in Syllabus 
I find the new IGCSE Syllabus 2015 is more complete and will prepare students better for their university and colleges. Please do make sure your tutors and teachers are using the latest syllabus to prepare you for the 2016 Examinations.
