Learners following the Cambridge International A Level Food Studies syllabus study both the theoretical and practical aspects of nutrition, food, and food preparation. They develop their knowledge and understanding of the composition of foods, digestion, and of the food manufacturing and service industries.
Learners also improve their practical skills, producing a variety of healthy meals designed to meet different nutritional requirements. As a result of their studies, learners also develop an analytical and critical approach to decision-making and problem-solving.
We are withdrawing Cambridge International A Level Food Studies (9336) for all countries except Brunei and Mauritius. The last examination in countries other than Brunei and Mauritius will be November 2019. We communicated this decision to schools in February 2016.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
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).
