Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives encourages learners to think about and explore solutions to significant global issues.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
To better meet the needs of learners, we have introduced a single list of topics to be used in all three components.
We have increased the weighting for the Team Element in the Team Project to support the importance of the work done as a team. We have also included a list of command words in the syllabus.
For full details of the changes, please see the 2025-2027 syllabus above.
We are developing a comprehensive range of resources to help teachers deliver this updated syllabus.
We aim to provide a scheme of work and other relevant classroom resources. Example Candidate Responses will be available following the first examination in 2025. Visit the School Support Hub from June 2025 onwards for details.

A unique feature of Cambridge Global Perspectives is the dedicated Online Learning Area – free to schools that offer the subject. The area allows schools around the world to access resources and courses and build online communities.
You can access the Global Perspectives materials on the Online Learning area.
For some subjects, we publish grade descriptions to help understand the level of performance candidates’ grades represent.
We paused the publication of grade descriptions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the temporary changes to the awarding standard in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
As the awarding standard has now returned to the pre-pandemic standard, we are working to produce up-to-date grade descriptions for most of our general qualifications. These will be based on the awarding standards in place from June 2023 onwards.
Check the Submit for Assessment page and the samples database for information and guidance on submitting moderated and examined work using Submit for Assessment.
