Examinations 2022 Overview

This page has been added to our website to act as a central point for ICHS students and parents seeking clarity on the structure of GCSE, AS and A Level examinations in the summer 2022 series. As all content is subject to change, due to the ongoing pandemic, we recommend that you check this page regularly and follow the relevant links to ensure that you are fully prepared in each subject area. Our staff team will be following this guidance when preparing our students for their final examinations. Please note that although topics may not be examined, teachers may still cover them in lessons when exploring links between information and to ensure that our students are fully prepared for progression onto A Levels, Degree courses, Apprenticeships and the workplace.

Grading in the summer 2022 exam series

Ofqual has also confirmed its plans for grading standards for the summer 2022 exam series. In a blog they explain their plan for a fair and gradual return to pre-pandemic grading standards. Summer 2022 will be a transition year to reflect that we’re in a pandemic recovery period – but will still include a grading safety net with more generous grading than pre-pandemic years. In 2023, Ofqual will aim to return to results that are in line with those in pre-pandemic years.
