Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications provide a strong framework to support effective professional development of teachers and leaders.
An essential subject for all learners, Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics encourages the development of mathematical knowledge as a key life skill, and as a basis for more advanced study. The syllabus aims to build learners' confidence by helping them develop a feel for numbers, patterns and relationships, and places a strong emphasis on solving problems and presenting and interpreting results. Learners also gain an understanding of how to communicate and reason using mathematical concepts.
Please note: June 2016 is the final examination series in which syllabus 0580 will be funded in state schools. After 2016 it will be unregulated and unfunded. Schools wishing to continue to offer a regulated and funded version should move to our new Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Mathematics (0626). This new syllabus will not count in government performance tables.
For more information about this syllabus, please visit our Cambridge IGCSEs (9-1) page.
UK independent schools can continue to offer our Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics syllabus (0580) graded A*-G beyond 2016.
You can download one or more question papers for a previous session. Teachers registered with Cambridge can access our password-protected Teacher Support site, where a much wider selection of syllabus materials is available to download.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
