GCSE/A Level/Vocational appeals
As usual, students will be able to appeal their grades.
These will take place in their usual form of a 'review of marking'. This means that an examiner will check the original marking of the paper to see if it is within their range of 'tolerance'.
Grades can go up or down as a result of an appeal.
Adjustment for the exams
Students in exam years have had two years of disrupted schooling due to the pandemic. As a result, the Department for Education has decided to make adjustments to the 2022 exams.
This includes reducing content, spacing out core subject papers and advance information on exam topics.
JCQ has published a guide for students and updated FAQs on advance information. Advance information is one part of a package of measures introduced by Government to support students whose learning has been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic and is intended to help guide and prioritise revision.
JCQ has provided links to guidance on advance information from JCQ member awarding bodies on a dedicated landing page. You can find relevant guidance from JCQ and Ofqual, including FAQs for students and exam centres, and the student guide on the JCQ landing page.
GCSE/A Level resits 2022
Students who are unhappy with their grade, and either have been unsuccessful in their appeal or chose not to appeal, will have the opportunity to sit an examination in the next summer series in 2023.
English language and mathematics will be available to resit in the November 2022 exam series.
