Teaching & learning
The Hinduism syllabus enables learners to gain an understanding of the religious writings, history and current affairs of Hinduism. Learners are expected to think and argue intelligently about the subject.
The syllabus is broad, and ranges from the Vedic Age, through the Epic Age and Medieval Age to the Modern Age. As well as learning about sacred texts, philosophical ideas and spiritual/religious beliefs, learners develop knowledge about Jainism and Theravada Buddhism in relation to Hinduism.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
