Teaching & learning
Cambridge IGCSE India Studies offers students the opportunity to understand the emergence of contemporary India and the achievements, challenges and opportunities facing the nation that is destined to be one of the great powers of the 21st century.
Political systems and democracy, economic development, contemporary society and culture, and India's relationship with the wider world, are the core areas of study. By building their own portfolio of research, students develop skills in enquiry and learn how to plan their work. The syllabus builds on existing good practice in international education and area studies to provide a lively and innovative cross-curricular course.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE India Studies (0447). The last examination for this subject will be June 2019. We communicated this decision to schools in November 2015.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
