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 GCSE Physical Education 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 GCSE Physical Education Full Course and Short Course advance information documents. On page 3 of the advance information, we have removed a bullet point as this information is presented clearly and correctly on the front cover. The new versions of these documents are named as 'Version 2'. Please check that you have downloaded the latest versions.
