Teaching and learning
The Cambridge IGCSE Physical Science syllabus helps learners to understand the technological world in which they live, and take an informed interest in science and scientific developments. It is a single award qualification, earning one grade. They learn about the basic principles of Physical Science through a mix of theoretical and practical studies.
As they progress, learners gain an understanding of how science is studied and practised, and become aware that the results of scientific research can have both good and bad effects on individuals, communities and the environment.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
