Cambridge igcse literature in english (0475).
- Syllabus overview
The syllabus enables learners to read, interpret and evaluate texts through the study of literature in English. Learners develop an understanding of literal meaning, relevant contexts and of the deeper themes or attitudes that may be expressed. Through their studies, they learn to recognise and appreciate the ways in which writers use English to achieve a range of effects, and will be able to present an informed, personal response to the material they have studied.
The syllabus also encourages the exploration of wider and universal issues, promoting learners' better understanding of themselves and of the world around them.
This syllabus replaces Cambridge IGCSE Literature (English) (0486) from 2020 onwards. The only change is the title and the syllabus code. Past papers and other resources for are still largely applicable for teaching Cambridge IGCSE Literature in English (0475).
The last series for Cambridge IGCSE Literature (English) (0486) will be November 2019.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.

Find out more about our range of English syllabuses to suit every level and ambition.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that grade descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020, 2021 or 2022.
Publication of grade descriptions was paused in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the temporary changes to the grading standard that have been in place for 2020, 2021 and 2022. We are currently working on producing these grade descriptions. This work will make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the more stable grading standard that we expect to have in place for June 2023 onwards.

Key topics covered in the course
By the end of your Cambridge IGCSE English Literature course your child should be able to:
- Read, evaluate and interpret texts
- Recognise and analyse the ways writers achieve a range of effects
- Create and articulate, well-informed, justified personal responses to the texts they have studied
Prior requirements and hours of study
- Previous study: CAIE recommends that learners starting this course should have studied an English curriculum such as the Cambridge Lower Secondary programme or equivalent national educational framework such as the Key Stage 3 programme of study within the National Curriculum for England (Years 7-9).
- Your child should allow for up to 150 hours’ study time to complete the course plus additional time for completing assignments. Please note that 150 hours is an approximate figure which depends on their learning abilities and the pace at which they work.
The syllabus and exam
The course will prepare your child for the Cambridge (CAIE) IGCSE English Literature syllabus 0475 or 0992.
- The set texts to be studied for 2022-23 are: Shakespeare: Twelfth Night, Fifteen poems from Songs of Ourselves Volume 2, a Cambridge anthology of 19th and 20th Century verse, Jhumpa Lahiri: The Namesake
The exam comprises three written papers:
Set texts, poetry and prose: 1 hour and 30 minutes (50% of the total mark)
Set text, drama: 45 minutes (25%)
Unseen: 1 hour and 15 minutes (25%)
There are Cambridge exam centres in over 150 countries. We can provide details of those most convenient.
All of our IGCSE courses include a number of past exam papers in the final module. These include the most recent paper which can be taken as a mock exam and submitted to your Tutor for assessment and feedback for a modest additional fee.
Please note, Wolsey Hall does not provide examination texts if required to students.

Songs of Ourselves Volume 2
The fee for IGCSE English Literature is £655 via instalments. There is a discount of 5% for payment in full reducing the fee to £615. Read more about our fees and discounts, see what our fees include or use our fee calculator to find out the total cost of the courses you select. If you’re not delighted with your course, let us know within 45 days and we’ll refund your course fee (less the cost of the books).
IGCSE English Language
Our IGCSE English Language homeschooling course will enable your child to communicate clearly and effectively. These skills are vital for entry to higher education and in the workplace. A good grade in IGCSE English Language (C or 4 or better) is evidence of these skills. It will satisfy the English Language entrance requirements of universities, and meet the needs of employers everywhere.
Our Cambridge IGCSE Maths homeschooling course will provide your child with a strong grounding in the subject and fully prepare them for the IGCSE exam. They may take it at Extended level (up to grade A* or 9), or at Core level (up to grade C or 5).
In many ways our Cambridge IGCSE History homeschooling course is like studying literature. It’s easy to understand the story of a book as you read it, but it takes deeper thought to understand the themes, characters, symbolism and message of a book. In the same way it takes deeper thought to understand why something has happened in History or why it still affects the world today.
Our Cambridge IGCSE French homeschooling course is based around the language skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing, Psychological studies have found that speaking a second language, such as French, is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than those of single language speakers.
I’ve just got my results back and let’s just say I’m so happy! I am very lucky to have done schooling through this system. I used to go to regular school, where although my grades weren’t bad, I was struggling to keep up with everyone. I’ve found the best thing about Wolsey Hall is how I’m able to work at my own pace, so I’m never leaving topics behind that I don’t understand. Every question or problem I’ve had has been answered either through the Canvas resources or by my tutors. I’m really grateful for Wolsey for helping me pass all my exams, and I look forward to continue into my AS and AL years!
