Statement about assessment arrangements for Summer 2022

In March, we advised schools and colleges that that assessment requirements will be adapted for learners studying for GCSE, AS and A levels and the Skills Challenge Certificate Qualifications in summer 2022.

WJEC has recently consulted on the proposed adaptations with teachers, learners and parents. This week WJEC will publish the outcome of the consultation and the information will be available for schools and colleges.

Unless there is significant impact by the pandemic, we are planning that approved GCSE, AS and A level qualifications will be assessed via exams and non-examination assessments as normal, but reflecting the adaptations, in summer 2022.  However, alternative arrangements will be put in place in case there is significant impact on teaching and learning as a consequence of the pandemic.  

We will inform schools and colleges about alternative contingency arrangements early in the autumn term, so they are ready to be implemented if needed.
