The Cambridge IGCSE History syllabus looks at some of the major international issues of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as well as covering the history of particular regions in more depth. The emphasis is on both historical knowledge and on the skills required for historical research.
Learners develop an understanding of the nature of cause and effect, continuity and change, similarity and difference and find out how to use and understand historical evidence as part of their studies. Cambridge IGCSE History will stimulate any learner already interested in the past, providing a basis for further study, and also encouraging a lifelong interest in the subject. Both coursework and non-coursework options are available.
The syllabus is well designed, interesting to teach, accessible to learners and has been updated for first teaching in 2018. It explains what you need to know, how they will be assessed, and the relationship between assessment objectives and the examination papers.
Learners can use this guide to develop an understanding of the Cambridge course and how it will be assessed, helping to increase their confidence. The guide describes each exam paper and includes useful advice to help you understand what to expect in the final exam.
Example Candidate Response (ECR)
ECR booklets provide illustrative examples of candidate work at different levels of performance. Each answer is annotated with examiner comments on the awarded mark and any mistakes the candidate has made. The examiner explains how the candidate could have improved their answer, and lists common mistakes made in this question across all candidates who sat the exam. You can use the existing booklets to demonstrate the examination standard but note that these do not reflect the content changes in the 2020 syllabus. Revised booklets will be available in 2021.
