Cambridge International AS & A Level Digital Media & Design allows learners to explore a range of processes and techniques in digital media through flexible course design covering digital photography, moving image, games design and mobile and multimedia applications.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
For clarity and to reflect feedback from schools, we have updated the assessment objectives and themes listed for Component 1 (Portfolio).
We have updated component descriptions and requirements 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 2026-2028 syllabus above.

For some subjects, we publish grade descriptions to help understand the level of performance candidates’ grades represent.
We paused the publication of grade descriptions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the temporary changes to the awarding standard in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
As the awarding standard has now returned to the pre-pandemic standard, we are working to produce up-to-date grade descriptions for most of our general qualifications. These will be based on the awarding standards in place from June 2023 onwards.
Check the Submit for Assessment page and the samples database for information and guidance on submitting moderated and examined work using Submit for Assessment.
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).
