The Cambridge O Level Hinduism syllabus enables learners to develop an enquiring and critical approach to the study of Hinduism; it also provides an introduction to a variety of interpretations of the ideas contained in Hinduism. The course looks at aspects of knowledge, action and devotion, worship and festivals, Hindu ethics and reform movements in Hinduism in the 19th and 20th centuries. Learners build on this foundation to identify and explore some of the religious and ethical questions raised in The Principal Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita and Shri Ramacharitamanasa. The syllabus gives learners an appreciation of one of the major religions of the world.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We are withdrawing Cambridge O Level Hinduism (2055) from the November and June exam series, with the exception of Mauritius (see below).
The last November exam series will be in 2023 and the last June exam series will be in 2025.
We communicated this syllabus withdrawal decision to schools in January 2023.
We support the work of the national education authorities in Mauritius to provide national assessments for their learners in secondary schools. Cambridge International O Level Hinduism (2055) will continue to be available in the November exam series for schools in Mauritius only.
