Teaching and learning
Focusing on issues of particular relevance to less economically developed countries, the Cambridge IGCSE Development Studies syllabus looks at the changes in society that encourage or hamper human development. By emphasising the interaction between economic, geographical, social and political processes, learners gain a greater awareness of the local, regional and national issues that affect development. As a result, learners will become more informed about their own local context, and can participate positively in the shaping of their own society.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 3 and 4. Check the administrative zone for your school.
