Teaching & learning
The Cambridge O Level Hinduism syllabus enables learners to develop an enquiring and critical approach to the study of Hinduism; it also provides an introduction to a variety of interpretations of the ideas contained in Hinduism. The course looks at aspects of knowledge, action and devotion, worship and festivals, Hindu ethics and reform movements in Hinduism in the 19th and 20th centuries. Learners build on this foundation to identify and explore some of the religious and ethical questions raised in The Principal Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita and Shri Ramacharitamanasa. The syllabus gives learners an appreciation of one of the major religions of the world.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 3 and 4. Check the administrative zone for your school.
