Changes for 2022

Because of the ongoing impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there are some changes to how GCSE Mathematics will be assessed in 2022.

These changes are for 2022 only.

What you need to know

  • Formulae sheet provided in exam
  • Advanced information on exams will be available

Formulae sheet provided in exam

For 2022 only, a formulae sheet will be provided in the exam. This means that students will be able to demonstrate their mathematical understanding without having to memorise formulae.

You can find the formulae sheets for GCSE Maths (Foundation tier) and GCSE Maths (Higher tier) on our website now, in order for students to familiarise themselves with the sheets for revision and exam practice.

This sheet will also be provided as an insert with every question paper.

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.
