Cambridge Pre-U is a post-16 qualification that prepares learners with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed at university. It promotes independent and self-directed learning in preparation for undergraduate study.
In November 2019 we announced that we will be withdrawing Cambridge Pre-U. The last examinations for the majority of subjects were in June 2023, with a resit available in June 2024. No teaching of Cambridge Pre-U syllabuses should be started for new students in September 2023.
Examinations for Latin, Classical Greek, Psychology, Russian and Italian are no longer available. Only resit candidates can be entered to take the exams in June 2024 for remaining syllabuses. New candidates will not be eligible to enter.
Cambridge Pre-U is available in 24 Principal Subjects, and Global Perspectives and Research – an extended project qualification.
Support for Cambridge Pre-U teachers includes training workshops, curriculum resources, discussion forums and education events.
Assessment takes place at the end of the course creating more time for teaching and learning, free from the interruptions of modular exams.
UK universities accept Cambridge Pre-U and recognition is growing internationally, including in the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Germany and The Netherlands.
