Cambridge International A Level Tamil builds on the language skills gained at Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level or Cambridge International AS Level, and is the ideal foundation for university-level study, or to improve career prospects.
Learners will gain an understanding of how to use the language in a variety of situations. They will be expected to handle texts and other source materials, extracting information in order to respond to specific tasks. Through their studies, learners can expect to achieve greater fluency, accuracy and confidence in the language. They will also learn how to translate material from English into Tamil.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
From 2024 to 2026, this syllabus is available to centres in administrative zones 3 & 4 in the June series. It will also be available in the November series in Mauritius only.
From 2027, this syllabus is available to centres in all administrative zones in the November series only.
