Now booking for GCSE & A-Level Autumn 2022 exams!
Results will look different to the last 2 years, because the nature of the assessment is different. Results in summer 2022 will be higher than in 2019, when students last sat summer exams, but lower than 2021 when grades were based on assessments by teachers.
Some of the changes in exams were:
This year young people and students have taken exams for the first time following the disruption caused by the pandemic.

It means grading will be more generous than when exams last took place before the pandemic.
Get an overview of how we mark assessments and consistently award grades that fairly reflect a learner's performance. To ensure that our qualifications continue to receive recognition from employers and education providers, we have to demonstrate that learners of the same ability are awarded the same grade, regardless of when they completed their course. The information below explains how we do this.
We set new grade boundaries each time a new exam or assessment is completed. They indicate the minimum number of marks students need to achieve to get a particular grade.
The Department for Education have confirmed that exams will go ahead in 2022, but with a few changes, such as optionality or advance information. For GCSE Mathematics, the following arrangements have been confirmed for November 2022:
To make exams in 2022 less daunting, including the November resit, students will be told in advance some information about the exam content, helping them to manage their exam preparation. The Department for Education has confirmed that advance information for the November resit can now be released.
The November 2022 advance information is different advance information to the summer series. You can now access your advance information for November 2022.

For GCSE Maths, the exam support will be a separate formula sheet which gives students the formulae they may need to refer to in their assessment, appropriate to their tier of entry. This will be available as an additional insert on the day of the examination. The formulae sheet is available to download below and learners should familiarise themselves with the formulae sheet ahead of the November 2022 examinations. The formula sheet for the November resit is the same as the one which was provided for the summer 2022 examinations.
