In Cambridge IGCSE Spanish Literature, learners read, interpret and evaluate a range of literary texts. As well as developing an understanding of the texts studied, in terms of both literal meaning and the deeper themes or attitudes that may be expressed, the syllabus aims to encourage learners' enjoyment of reading.
Through their reading, they learn to recognise and appreciate the ways in which writers use Spanish to achieve a range of effects, and are encouraged to present an informed, personal response to the material they are studying. The syllabus also allows the exploration of wider and universal issues, promoting learners' better understanding of themselves and of the world around them.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE Literature (Spanish) 0488 and replacing it with our newly designed Cambridge IGCSE Literature in Spanish 0474 syllabus.
The last assessment of Cambridge IGCSE Literature (Spanish) 0488 will be November 2024. The first assessment of the new Cambridge IGCSE Literature in Spanish 0474 syllabus will be June 2025. The new syllabus will be published in September 2022. We communicated this change to schools in April 2022.
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).
