The government is currently insisting that examinations will go ahead as usual in summer 2022 but it seems possible that some students may find that local restrictions do not allow them to take exams. The DfE, Ofqual and the exam boards have yet to announce what will happen in these cases but we will be watching events closely. In summer 2020 and 2021, when it turned out there were no exams at all, Oxford Open Learning provided calculated grades for the vast majority of its students to enable them to move on to the next step in their development. Whatever the contingencies are, we will try our absolute best to fully support you in 2022 and/or 2023.
Most subjects will get pre-release material on the 7th of February. This material will help students prepare for the exams. This information will be released to private candidates. More details of the pre-release information can be found on the JCQ website. Advance-Information-for-General-Qualifications-2021-22.pdf (jcq.org.uk)
In addition, Maths GCSE, Physics IGCSE and Science IGCSE will be provided with a formula sheet in the exam.
Some subjects have a reduced or altered specification this year. Where a subject has changed, links to the summary of changes can be found below.
