By considering agriculture as an applied science, learners gain an understanding of basic agricultural principles and skills through extensive practical experience. The syllabus develops learners' ability to apply a scientific approach to the study of topics such as crop and livestock husbandry, farm structure and machinery, and agricultural economics.
As a result, learners gain a positive attitude towards farming and rural development, and appreciate the ways in which improved agricultural practice can be used to alleviate the problems of famine and malnutrition.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We are withdrawing Cambridge O Level Agriculture (5038). The last exam will be in November 2025. We communicated this withdrawal decision to schools in December 2021.
You may be interested in Cambridge IGCSE Agriculture (0600) as an alternative. This syllabus is available in the November series to schools in Administrative Zones 2, 3, 4 and 5. Check the administrative zone for your school.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 4 and 5. Check the administrative zones for your school.
