For AS and A level Politics 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.

Download the JCQ teacher guidance

Download the full advance information. You can also download our advance information revision support tailored to A level Politics that includes free teacher access to Pearson’s Revise ActiveBooks* for use in class, available until 28 June 2022.

Following further quality checks after the release of the advance information on 7 February we have updated the A level Politics advance information document. For Paper 3A and 3B some of the specification points had been shortened (1.2, 3.1, 3.2, 4.6, 5.4 for 9PL03A on page 6, 1.1, 5.4 for 9PL03B on page 7). To avoid confusion, we have reinstated the full titles from the specification to make it clear that students need to revise all of the relevant content from these sections of the specification. The new version is named as 'Version 2'. Please check that you have downloaded the latest version.
