We review all of our syllabuses regularly to make sure they continue to meet the needs of our schools and are up-to-date with current thinking.
We have updated this syllabus and all assessment materials to make sure it is aligned with Cambridge IGCSE First Language English (0500) after feedback from teachers who told us that many candidates take both English and Spanish. Aligning the two syllabuses helps learners to understand what is expected from the assessment.
The updated syllabus is for examination from June 2022 onwards. Please see the 2022-2024 syllabus above for full details.
We are developing a wide range of support to help you plan and teach the 2022-2024 syllabus.
Look out for a comprehensive range of materials to help you teach the updated syllabus including a Scheme of work, Specimen Paper Answers, Learner guide and Coursework handbook and Example Candidate Responses. These materials will be available from April 2020 onwards through our School Support Hub
