These changes apply to 2022 only.

Deadline for question approval form moved

To help you and your students plan their non-exam assessment (NEA) for summer 2022, we’ve moved the deadline for submitting the Question Approval form to your NEA adviser. The new submission date is 3 December 2021.

Advance information on exams will be available

To help students focus their exam preparation, there will be advance information on what exams will cover.

This advance information will be available by 7 February 2022, or sooner if the pandemic worsens.

In the meantime, the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) has published guidance for teachers and students on the use of advance information for 2022.
