Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics encourages learners to develop their mathematical ability as a key life skill, and as a strong basis for further study of mathematics or to support skills in other subjects.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We have updated the subject content and included more examples to better exemplify the depth of teaching required.
One of the papers at each tier is now a dedicated non-calculator paper, allowing candidates to demonstrate more of what they know and can do, without changing the standard and demand of the qualification.
These changes will improve candidates’ overall experience and the accessibility of the papers.
We have made the changes in line with other Cambridge Upper Secondary Mathematics qualifications, supporting those teaching more than one syllabus at this level.
For full details of the changes, please see the 2025-2027 syllabus above or download our factsheet for an overview.
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.

Please note that if you make an entry for the A*-G grading scale, it is not then possible to switch to the 9-1 grading scale once the entries deadline has passed. If you find that you have accidentally made an entry for the A*-G syllabus, you must withdraw and re-enter before the entries deadline.
From 2020, we have made some changes to the wording and layout of the front covers of our question papers to reflect the new Cambridge International branding and to make instructions clearer for candidates - learn more.
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).
