By considering agriculture as an applied science, learners gain an understanding of basic agricultural principles and skills through extensive practical experience. The syllabus develops learners' ability to apply a scientific approach to the study of topics such as crop and livestock husbandry, farm structure and machinery, and agricultural economics. As a result, learners gain a positive attitude towards farming and rural development, and appreciate the ways in which improved agricultural practice can be used to alleviate the problems of famine and malnutrition.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 2, 3, 4 and 5. Check the administrative zone for your school.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that Grade Descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020 or 2021.
Publication of grade descriptions for these syllabuses has been delayed. This is to make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the full range of candidate performance after the 2020 and 2021 series.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
