Cambridge International AS & A Level Art & Design has been revised. Learners will develop their personal practice, enrich their understanding of key concepts and improve their practical skills in a wide range of traditional and contemporary techniques.
The key concepts for Cambridge International AS & A Level Art & Design are:
The new syllabus is designed to accommodate a wide range of abilities, materials and resources and allows the different skills of teachers to be fully exploited. Depending on local university entrance requirements, students may be able to use it to progress directly to university courses in art and design or some other subjects. It is also suitable as part of a course of general education.
The syllabus and support materials are available for teaching from September 2018. Find out more about the availability of the old and new syllabuses by exam series.
Please note: It is not possible to combine components from 9704 with components from Cambridge International AS Level Art & Design (9479). Students cannot carry forward 2019 results for Cambridge International AS Level Art & Design (9704) beyond 2019.
To help you deliver the new Cambridge International AS & A Level Art & Design syllabus, we are developing a comprehensive support package including teaching and exam preparation resources. The resources will be available from March 2018 in time for first teaching and can be accessed through Teacher Support. A text book prepared by a Core Team Publisher will be available prior to first teaching.
See our events and training calendar for more details about online and face-to-face course to support those teaching this qualification.
