JCQ Information for candidates

Update, February 2022

On 7 February, the exam boards released Advance Information for the summer 2022 A-Level and GCSE exams (except GCSE English Literature, History, Geography, and Art GCSE and A-Level)

Advance Information is part of the special support in place for students sitting exams in summer 2022 after COVID disruption to education since March 2020.

Key Questions:

Q: Where can I find the Advance Information?

A: Here, via the JCQ website, which links to the separate exam boards. Your teachers will also provide you with all the information you need.

Q: Is the Advance Information everything I need to revise for the exam?

A: No, not necessarily. It may only cover the content for some exam questions, often those worth higher marks. This will vary between subjects and exam boards. Your teachers will tell you everything you need to know, so follow their guidance. JCQ's guidance is "to make the best use of past papers you should revise a broad range of content".
