When does this change come into effect?

The final assessment opportunity for these qualifications will be summer 2022.

Important information

Our aim in taking this approach is to align our qualifications and support with the subjects and levels that teachers are prioritising. We will continue to offer our full GCSE qualifications in both of these subjects, and this decision does not affect any of our GCSE qualifications in other subjects.


We understand that you may have questions about this change, and how it will affect you and your learners. We are here to help you with any concerns you may have, and to provide additional information or support that you may need. Please submit any queries through our short online form.
