Lack of textbook resources for A level Islamic Studies 9488 - what do I doWatch
Hi. I am from Pakistan, and will be sitting my Cambridge AS Level in Islamic Studies (9488), in Nov 2021 as a private candidate. As this is a new syllabus and will be first offered in November, there are no textbooks available (at least there are no published resources specified on the Cambridge International website). There are obviously no past papers, and only one specimen paper available for each of the four exams. There are a lot of other resources I have access to, such as interpretations (tafaseer) of the Qur'an and Hadith and biographies of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), but none of them are written from an exam perspective. The subject content specified on the syllabus is also very vague and gives me very little idea as to how detailed my answers should be and what depths I should go to in my study of the subject.If anyone here is also studying AS level Islamic Studies, it would be great if you have any tips/ advice to share! Also, maybe we can exchange notes? (I am making my own notes, and am willing to share them if anyone's interested.) Also if you know of any resources (published or online) specifically designed to meet the needs of the Islamic Studies syllabus, I would be glad to have a look at them.
