For AS and A level History the following arrangements have been confirmed for summer 2022:

Advance information

To make exams in 2022 less daunting, students will be told in advance some information about the exam content, helping them to manage their exam preparation. The Department for Education has now confirmed that advance information can be released.

You can now access your advance information for May/June 2022.

The advance information should be read alongside the JCQ teacher guidance and the advance information guidance which was published on 9 December.

Following further quality checks after the release of the advance information on 7 February we have updated the A level History advance information document. Topic 37.2 incorrectly had the heading Section B listed above the content for Section A. We have changed this so that both headings in Topic 37.2 now correctly named as Section A and Section B. This update is reflected on page 39. The new version is named as 'Version 2'. Please check that you have downloaded the latest version.

A level History was not affected by the outcomes of the 2022 NEA and field work consultation, which published on 16 June.


We will be supporting you and your students every step of the way with the 2022 summer arrangements.
