Can artwork be returned direct to students?

Cambridge cannot return IGCSE Artwork to individual students’ addresses.

Return of IGCSE artwork for 0400/03

IGCSE Art & Design components 0400/03 is returned to schools free of charge as soon as the Enquiries about Results period has ended.

Return of 0400/01 and 02

Schools requiring the return of components 0400/01 and 0400/02 will need to complete and return the Returning Cambridge IGCSE Art and Design Work - Teacher Assessment - Form 5, which can be found here.

We ask that you include a copy of this form with your Art & Design work, by the syllabus/component submission deadline, available on the samples database. You should keep a copy of the form for your own records If you do not include a copy with your Art & Design work, you should email the form to us by the following deadlines:

  • March series – 6 June
  • June series – 20 September
  • November series – 26 February.

Further instructions can be found on the form.

If you do not submit the form by the deadline, we cannot guarantee we will be able to return your work. If you are an Associate Centre, submit this form to your Cambridge Associate – they will send it to us.

Charging for the return of 0400/01 and 02

Our general policy is that we do not return any scripts to schools. The exceptions to this are where a school has paid for them as part of an Enquiry about Results and the other is with Art & Design syllabuses.

We do return all coursework free of charge. However we are often asked if we can return scripts as well and the decision has been made that we will do so for Art & Design syllabuses because of the nature of the work. As a result schools are asked to pay the costs for the return the scripts. The fee for IGCSE is subsidised by Cambridge and it is only charged per component rather than per script.

From 2019, new fees are being introduced for the return of Art & Design work. Please check the fees list before completing this form. The fees list is available in the ‘My Messages’ section of Direct.
