Cambridge International AS & A Level Design & Technology encourages learners to be innovative and creative and to develop their ability to design and make high quality products.
The syllabus develops learners’:
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We have updated the subject content to reflect changes in the industry and field of study and to reflect the changing role of the designer in society.
The assessment for the written papers and the coursework projects have been updated to make them more accessible to learners and teachers and to reflect up to date best assessment practice and feedback from teachers and Higher Education institutions.
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.
