O-level University of Cambridge

O-level University of Cambridge

We provide a wide range of teaching support and resource materials for each Cambridge O Level subject.

Cambridge O Level leads to internationally recognised qualifications, accepted by leading universities and employers worldwide as evidence of academic ability.

Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral and practical examinations. This gives learners a variety of ways to show their knowledge and skills, particularly when their first language is not English.

Grades are benchmarked using six internationally recognised grades, from A* to E, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement.

Cambridge O Level examination series occur twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.

Past papers with mark schemes for each subject are available for you to download, along with examiner reports from previous exam sessions, and specimen papers. To find them, go to the Cambridge O Level subjects page and choose your subject, or go to the Resource Centre.

Cambridge teachers can download a much wider selection of syllabus materials from our password-protected Teacher Support site.
