By following this theoretical and practical syllabus, learners cover a range of topics including use of textiles, style and choice of clothing, use of patterns, fitting and assembling garments, and how to care for clothing. The aim is to develop learners' creative and aesthetic awareness, stimulating an enjoyment in the creative use of textiles.
Learners develop the practical skills essential for further study, which will also last a lifetime. Through their studies, learners also develop a discriminating and informed approach to the marketing of clothes, learning how to assess suitability and recognise quality, in the context of fashion and textiles.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We are withdrawing Cambridge O Level Fashion and Textiles (6130) from the November exam series. The last November exam series will be in 2023. From 2022, we will only offer this syllabus in the June exam series within administrative zones 3 and 4. Check the administrative zones for your school. We communicated this series withdrawal decision to schools in June 2021.
From 2020, we have made some changes to the wording and layout of the front covers of our question papers to reflect the new Cambridge International branding and to make instructions clearer for candidates - learn more.
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).
