Cambridge Pre-U Economics gives learners a thorough and rigorous understanding of the theory that underpins the workings of a modern day economy. The course develops skills in evaluation and independent thinking, preparing learners well for university study. The linear structure gives teachers time to explore topics and events in the current economy, and gives learners time to grow into the subject.
The syllabus introduces new topics, such as game theory, and offers opportunities for the detailed study of current issues such as China and the global economy, Europe, and transport's effects on the environment.
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.
You will see these changes on live question papers from June 2020 and therefore we have made these changes on the specimen materials for this syllabus. The specimen questions and mark schemes remain the same.
The last examination series for Cambridge Pre-U Economics (9772) will be June 2023. There is a resit opportunity in June 2024, there is no option for candidates to resit after this date. We communicated this decision to schools in November 2019.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that Grade Descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020 or 2021.
Publication of grade descriptions for these syllabuses has been delayed. This is to make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the full range of candidate performance after the 2020 and 2021 series.
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).
