For GCSE Mathematics, 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 of the content that will or won’t be on the exam papers, helping them to manage their exam preparation. This information will be issued in the spring term to help students to focus their revision time.

However, the DfE have confirmed that if the impact of the pandemic worsens, it could be issued earlier in the academic year. We will update you on the timing of the advance information release once this has been confirmed.

Exam support materials

For GCSE Maths, the exam support will be a separate formula sheet which gives students the formulae they may need to refer to in their assessment, appropriate to their tier of entry. This will be available as an additional insert on the day of the examination. The formulae sheet will shortly be accessible via the website and learners should then familiarise themselves with the formulae sheet ahead of the summer 2022 examinations.

Support

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