Changes to GCSEs, AS and A-levels for summer 2021

Thursday 1 Oct 2020

We understand how important it is for you and your colleagues to have clarity about what Ofqual’s decisions on 2021 exams mean for each subject.

Ofqual has decided that not all subjects will have changes. For the subjects that do, we’ve been working hard to make the relevant changes to our qualifications.

Here’s a list of all our qualifications which have one-off changes for summer 2021.


AS and A-level



Updated 23 October: there are no changes to specifications for AS and A-level languages French, German and Spanish for summer 2021.
