Teaching and learning
The requirements below are effective from June 2017. Learn more about the requirements up to November 2016.
The Cambridge AICE Diploma is made up of individual Cambridge International AS and A Levels, which have widespread international standing as educational qualifications.
By demanding knowledge from three different subject groups, plus the core compulsory subject, Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives & Research, the Cambridge AICE Diploma provides a broad curriculum with a balance of maths and science, languages, arts and humanities, and skills-based subjects. It maintains flexibility and choice by allowing students to choose subjects at different levels.
To achieve the Diploma, all learners will need to study and pass the revised Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives & Research (9239). This skills-based course challenges learners to think critically, analyse evidence and compare perspectives. The learning is assessed through a team project and presentation as well as a written examination.
There are over 50 Cambridge International AS and A Level subjects to choose from across four subject groups:
Learners must achieve at least one credit from each of Groups 1, 2 and 3. A maximum of two credits can count from Group 4, which is optional.
Unless otherwise indicated, the subjects listed below are available as full (single) credit and double (two) credit courses. This is not a definitive list of subjects. For the full list please refer to the Cambridge International AS and A Level section of the Cambridge Guide to Making Entries booklet.
