Students across the UK sat their GCSEs and A-Level exams earlier this year, with most exams ending by June 28.

This year, the tests returned to normality, after being disrupted over the past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic - but there are changes that people should be aware of.

The Department for Education says: “As we return to exams, we want to get back to the pre-pandemic standard, but in the interests of fairness, Ofqual (who take the decisions on grading) won’t do so in one jump.

“Instead, 2022 will be a transition year to reflect that we are in a pandemic recovery period and students’ education has been disrupted. In 2022 the aim, therefore, will be to move grading to a point close to midway between 2021 and pre-pandemic profiles.”

So, when are the all-important result days, and what amendments have been made for the class of 2022?

Here’s everything you need to know.

When are GCSE and A-Level Results Day 2022?

GCSE results will be released on Thursday, August 25, 2022. AS and A Level students will get their grades on Thursday, August 18, 2022.

Students should have been provided with a full timetable of when to expect their results, either by the examination board, or by their school.

What changes have been made to GCSE and A-Levels this year?

Many changes were introduced for this year’s crop of students after Covid disrupted studies.

In most GCSE, AS, and A-Level exams, students had access to advanced information on the area of focus that their exam was to be on.

Another change that was introduced was that schools and colleges were allowed to choose the topics their students sat in the exams, for subjects in English Literature, History, Ancient History, and Geography.

GCSE Maths and Physics students also had access to a sheet with relevant formulae and equations while in their exam hall. For Art and Design, there was no timed practical work, and students were assessed on their portfolio alone.
