Exams in 2022

The Department for Education has updated its guidelines on exams in 2022, including information on contingency plans in the unlikely event exams cannot go ahead.

The guidleines are in Question and Answer format, with questions including:

  • Why are you bringing exams back?
  • What measures will be in place to make sure they are fair when different students have missed different amounts of time?
  • What about grading – are you making any changes to that?
  • What are your contingency plans in the event that exams cannot go ahead?

Ofqual has also published details of the support being provided for each qualification for students taking GCSEs, AS and A levels in 2022. Part of the changes includes more generous grading this year to provide a safety net for students who may have been impacted by the pandemic.
