We’ve been working hard to make the relevant changes to our qualifications following Ofqual’s decisions on summer 2021 exams, so here are the changes you need to know about.
GCSE English Language (8700)
The following changes apply to our GCSE English Language (8700) qualification and only for the 2021 exam series:
We understand that you’ll want to know more about these changes and what they mean for your subject next summer. We’ll publish further guidance about the summer 2021 exams in due course. You will find the latest information for your subject on our qualifications pages.
There are no other planned changes to our GCSE English Language specification or to the written exams. For November 2020, you’ll still need to submit an audio-visual recording for any student(s) entering for the exam and who are not carrying forward their Spoken Language result from a previous series.

Ofqual has decided there will not be any changes to AS or A-level English specifications and so our AS and A-level specifications remain the same.
