  2. Hey I am in IGCSE 2 which is 10th, I study at symbiosis international school which is in Pune Maharashtra.
    Me and my friends would be happy if you post short notes on maths(extended) too. We would really appreciate that

    1. We would love to, however, we’re all still students here at the IGCSE AID team, and don’t currently have time to write notes for a new subject.
      If you really need math notes, may I suggest the website https://www.mathsisfun.com/
      They’re an excellent resource for math revision, no matter the stage of your education that you are at.
      We apologise for the inconvenience!


    1. We try, but we’re not getting paid for this + we’re all at uni, so we have a lot of coursework to get through otherwise. We do apologise for the inconvenience :/
