Entries for our November 2011 exam series already tell us that it is going to be another record breaking series. Our growth is fuelling new developments, enabling us to innovate and give schools even greater choice of qualifications and services.
The most recent additions to our development schedule include a range of new qualifications – such as Cambridge IGCSE Italian, Cambridge International A Level English Language and Cambridge International A Level Media Studies – as well as the redevelopment of some of our existing portfolio of subjects such as our Cambridge International A Levels in History and Sociology. Every Cambridge qualification goes through a rigorous research, development and testing process, in consultation with schools, prior to first teaching. We will keep you updated on the progress of these new qualifications as they move through our development process.
One of the benefits of the Cambridge global community is that we can collaborate with a diverse range of schools. This helps us to innovate, and also means that schools can work together to help shape our qualifications. We are currently piloting a new Cambridge IGCSE in World Literature, and schools in 10 countries have already signed up to teach it and help us develop the course.
When schools teach our new qualifications for the first time, they can draw on support from schools in other countries via our online subject forums. We have seen this work successfully with our new Cambridge IGCSE qualifications in Global Perspectives, Enterprise, India Studies and International Mathematics, with schools swapping resources and ideas. Entries for all these new subjects are increasing.
You can keep up to date with all our new qualifications by visiting the New Qualifications section of our website. This is also the place to go if you want get involved in piloting new syllabuses.
