The Cambridge IGCSE Bangladesh Studies syllabus introduces learners to the history, culture, geography, environment and development of Bangladesh. They learn about Bangladesh's rich heritage and cultural influences, and about events which have shaped national identity. Through their studies, learners also gain an understanding of historical skills and concepts, and examine different interpretations of historical events.
Learners also consider the environmental and development issues facing Bangladesh; this will encourage a better understanding of the interaction between economy and environment, an understanding enhanced by the study of different source materials and perspectives. This syllabus gives all learners an appreciation of the heritage, challenges and opportunities facing Bangladesh.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE Bangladesh Studies (0449). The last examination for this subject will be June 2019. We communicated this decision to schools in November 2015.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
