The Hinduism syllabus enables learners to gain an understanding of the religious writings, history and current affairs of Hinduism. Learners are expected to think and argue intelligently about the subject.
The syllabus is broad, and ranges from the Vedic Age, through the Epic Age and Medieval Age to the Modern Age. As well as learning about sacred texts, philosophical ideas and spiritual/religious beliefs, learners develop knowledge about Jainism and Theravada Buddhism in relation to Hinduism.
The last examination series for Cambridge International [AS Level Hinduism (8058) / A level Hinduism (9014)] will be November 2020.
From 2021 this syllabus will be replaced by the updated syllabus Cambridge International AS and A Level Hinduism (9487).
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).
