Adjustments to GCSE and A Level Exams for 2022
The much anticipated news for Year 11 and Year 13 students regarding national adaptations to their exams was announced on Monday. Adjustments vary between subjects and the link below enables students and parents/carers easily to see the changes by searching by subject and exam board.
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/subject-by-subject-support-for-gcse-as-and-a-level-students-in-2022. The helpful JCQ_Advance-Information-Student-Guide.pdf summarises the news on one sheet and has been shared with all Year 11 and Year 13 students this week.
The exam boards your child follows (if they don’t remember themselves) can be found on the curriculum pages of our website for GCSE and in the sixth form prospectus for A Level and vocational subjects.
Teachers will adapt their lesson planning over coming months in response, whilst ensuring that GCSE students will be well-prepared too for sixth form study in their chosen subjects next year.
The news will help students focus their revision and should offer reassurance about curriculum coverage and more generous grade boundaries.
