International GCSEs English Literature (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. In addition, Pearson consulted on the May/June 2021 exam series for International GCSE. The outcomes informed decisions regarding changes to our international qualifications for May/June 2021, taking into consideration the changes to comparable UK qualifications published by Ofqual.
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.
