This syllabus enables learners to acquire knowledge of basic statistical ideas, methods and terminology. Study of the content of the syllabus enables learners to represent and use statistical data in graphical, diagrammatic and tabular forms, interpret statistical statements, calculations and diagrams, perform statistical calculations accurately and acquire knowledge of elementary ideas in probability.
Cambridge O Level Statistics provides a suitable foundation for further study in the subject, as well as developing concepts which are relevant in a wide range of other subjects.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We are withdrawing Cambridge O Level Statistics (4040). The last November series for this syllabus will be November 2027.
We are replacing it with the new Cambridge IGCSE Statistics 0479 syllabus, with first assessment in June 2027.
We communicated this change to schools in May 2023.
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).
