Cambridge International AS & A Level Hinduism helps learners gain a better understanding of the religious writings, history and current affairs of Hinduism. As a result, they are able to think and argue intelligently about the subject.
The syllabus is broad and ranges from the Vedic age to Hinduism in contemporary society. Learners develop knowledge about sacred texts, philosophical ideas and spiritual/religious beliefs and reflect on the role played by Hinduism today.

From 2021 this syllabus will be available in Administrative Zone 4. Check the administrative zones for your school. For further information please contact our Customer Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
