Exams and assessments 2022

Adaptions to 2022 summer exams will be made to ensure fairness for students whose learning has been disrupted due to the pandemic. The announcement by the Department for Education (DfE) was released this week along with updated guidance providing information on the exam support service for autumn exams, including 2022 VTQ exams.

The DfE and Ofqual have also opened their consultation setting out proposals on contingency arrangements for 2022, seeking views on:

  • The type, volume and timing of the production of the evidence used to inform teacher assessed grades (TAGs)
  • The support given by the exam boards to teachers determining TAGs
  • Quality assurance within schools and colleges (internal and external quality assurance)
