About IGCSE English Syllabus
Cambridge IGCSE First Language English is designed for learners whose first language is English. Cambridge IGCSE First Language English learners develop the ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively in both speech and writing. They learn how to employ a wide-ranging vocabulary, use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.
Learners are also encouraged to read widely, both for their own enjoyment and to further their awareness of the ways in which English can be used. Cambridge IGCSE First Language English also develops more general analysis and communication skills such as synthesis, inference, and the ability to order facts and present opinions effectively.
This syllabus is available to UK schools and schools in administrative Zone 3. It is approved by Ofqual and funded in state schools in England. If you are uncertain about whether you are in administrative Zone 3, please refer to our administrative zone page.
Please note: November 2016 is the final examination series for syllabus 0522. This syllabus will be replaced by our new Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) First Language English (0627). This new syllabus will be regulated and funded but not count in government performance tables.
