Cambridge IGCSE (9–1) Design & Technology enables learners to identify, consider and solve problems through creative thinking, planning and design, and by working with different media, materials and tools to produce a made product.
Learners gain technical and design awareness and develop skills such as initiative, resourcefulness, enquiry and ingenuity. They also develop the communication skills central to the design process.
Cambridge IGCSE Design & Technology (9–1) is designed to accommodate a wide range of interests, materials and resources. It provides an ideal basis for further study and equips learners with technical knowledge and practical designing and making skills for the world of work.
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE Design & Technology (0445). You will find past papers and other resources for Cambridge IGCSE Design & Technology (0445) that may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9–1) Design & Technology (0979).
From 2019 this syllabus will be available in Administrative Zone 3 in both June and November. Check the administrative zones for your school.

Please note that if you make an entry for the 9-1 grading scale, it is not then possible to switch to the A*-G grading scale once the entries deadline has passed. If you find that you have accidentally made an entry for the 9-1 syllabus, you must withdraw and re-enter before the entries deadline.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications.
