Exam Changes 2022
The advance information for exam content for each subject can be found using the links below. These can be broadly split into two categories:
- Advanced notice of topics for each exam paper in a qualification: For certain subjects, such as Mathematics, the topics for each exam paper have been published. This is not at a level which allows actual questions to be predicted or answers prepared but it will be a very helpful revision aid, both for the students and for teachers in helping to prepare classes.
- Optionality: In some subjects’ students will be able to choose which questions to answer – such as Geography or History. This will allow more time to be dedicated to preparing for one individual area. In addition, some exams have had elements removed, such as the requirement for fieldwork in Geography.
For each subject the full details of this information will be given, along with an important summary sheet. This summary sheet will contain the following three sections:
- A summary of the adaptations.
- How the school is using this information.
- What students should do.
Subject teachers will also be giving out this information in lessons. It is vital that students read this information carefully and use it in preparation for the summer exams, in order to ensure that revision and preparation is focussed on the correct content and skills.
PLEASE NOTE: THESE CHANGES ONLY AFFECT GCSE AND A-LEVEL COURSES. VOCATIONAL COURSES ARE NOT AFFECTED.
