A practical syllabus, the course examines the scientific, creative and artistic aspects of design and textiles, with plenty of opportunities for learners to apply what they have learnt by demonstrating their investigative, creative, and practical skills. Through the study of fibres and fabrics, learners find out about basic design, contemporary fashion, clothing manufacture and the use of commercial patterns to make a variety of garments.
Learners go on to explore textile applications and technology, looking at issues such as fitness for purpose, creative techniques, the application of colour, and environmental impact. They also study the making and finishing of textile products, the care of clothing, and the use and care of a sewing machine.
We are changing the availability of Cambridge International AS & A Level Design & Textiles (9631) to Administrative Zone 4 only. The last examination series for this syllabus, outside of Administrative Zone 4, will be November 2017. You may be interested in Cambridge International AS and A Level Art & Design 9704) or Cambridge International AS & A Level Art & Design (9479) as a possible alternative.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that Grade Descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020 or 2021.
Publication of grade descriptions for these syllabuses has been delayed. This is to make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the full range of candidate performance after the 2020 and 2021 series.
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).
