Pearson Edexcel GCSEs History (9–1) from 2016
Summer 2021 exam support
In August 2020 Ofqual confirmed there will be changes to the 2021 examination series due to the impact coronavirus has had on students’ education. Here you’ll find the information you need to help you understand the changes to GCSE (9-1) History.
Changes to Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) History examinations for 2021
Ofqual has confirmed that the changes for the 2021 series will be for students to be assessed on a compulsory modern depth study, along with a choice of two of the remaining three components. There are no changes to the content of any of the components themselves, nor to their assessment. More detail can be found in the assessment arrangements and FAQs, which we will update once final details are confirmed.
We are providing you and your students with materials specifically tailored to help you prepare for the summer 2021 exam series. Links to content support are listed below and we will let you know when further information is added as it becomes available.
Please note that the changes outlined are correct at time of publication and apply to the 2021 exam series only. For students due to be examined in 2022 these changes do not apply.
