The Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Economics syllabus develops an understanding of economic theory, terminology and principles. Learners study the economics of different countries and how these interrelate. They also learn to work with simple economics data and to use the tools of economic analysis. Learners apply understanding of economics to current economic issues.
The Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Economics syllabus provides a foundation for further study, including Cambridge International AS & A Level Economics, or the equivalent.
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE Economics (0455). You will find past papers and other resources for Cambridge IGCSE Economics (0455); these may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Economics (0987).
From 2020 this syllabus will be available in Administrative Zone 3 in both June and November. Check the administrative zones for your school.
For further information please contact our Customer Services team at email@example.com.
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. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
