External Exams Summer 2022

MINISTERIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT GCSE AND A LEVEL EXAMS 2022

The Minister of Education has made his long awaited announcement on next year’s GCSE and A Levels. The documents below contain information about how the exams will operate. By the start of the new academic year in September the school will have received detailed information from all of the exam boards and we will tailor our course delivery, internal assessment procedures and external exam preparation accordingly. That is a long way in the future, so in the meantime the three key points are:

1. We will return to external exams next year.

2. In the majority of subjects the exams will not cover the entire specification and areas of omission will be revealed soon.

3. This year’s AS grades will NOT count toward next year’s A2 awards, but AS levels sat next summer WILL count towards A2 awards made in the summer of 2023.

Kindest regards

Mr Naismith
