Careers Information

What happens if the exams in Summer 2022 are cancelled because of Covid-19?

Although the government is firmly committed to exams going ahead in summer 2022, there are contingency plans in place for the unlikely event that exams have to be cancelled again because of the pandemic. If exams have to be cancelled in summer 2022, students’ grades will instead be determined by their teachers, using a Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) approach similar to that used in summer 2021.  Ofqual has released  guidance for schools on contingency arrangements which can be access through this link: Guidance for schools, colleges and other exam centres on contingency arrangements for students entering GCSEs, AS and A levels, the Advanced Extension Award and Project qualifications in summer 2022 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Are there any changes to the GCSE examinations in summer 2022 in response to the pandemic?

A range of adaptations are going to be put into place by the government to support students in response to the pandemic. They include:

  • A choice of topics or content on which students will be assessed in GCSE English literature, history, ancient history and geography.
  • Providing advance information on the focus of exams to support students’ revision in subjects where there is not a choice of topics.
  • Giving students formulae sheets in GCSE maths and revised equation sheets in GCSE combined science and physics.
  • Changing requirements for practical science work and practical art and design assessments to ensure fairness.

When will GCSE exams happen in summer 2022?

GCSE exams will happen in May and June. The full examination timetable will be published nearer the time.

When will Students get the summer examination GCSE results?

GCSE results day will be held on 25th August 2022.

What equipment will I need to have?

Students will need a clear pencil case containing, two black pens (no gel pens), pencil, rubber, pencil sharpener, ruler, compass, a protractor and a Scientific calculator for selected examinations.

When will the examinations start?

GCSE exams will start promptly at the time indicated on the students GCSE timetable.

Can I eat or drink during the examination?

NO eating is allowed in examinations.

Students are permitted to have water only in a clear bottle.

Will I be allowed a calculator?

Students are permitted a Scientific calculator for selected examinations.

What are GCSE access arrangements?

Access arrangements allow skills and knowledge to be demonstrated by candidates with disabilities, temporary illnesses or special educational needs. They are pre-examination adjustments for candidates based on evidence of need and normal way of working.

What additional support outside of lesson is there to help with revision?

There are intervention sessions that take place at the end of the academy day which students can attend to help them with their revision. See the intervention tab for details.
