Exams are due to resume in England next summer after being cancelled for two years running during the pandemic, but there will be changes intended to avoid putting the students of 2022 at a disadvantage. Pupils taking GCSEs, A-levels and vocational exams are likely to get advanced notice of topics to make up for lost lesson time. Announcing a consultation before finalising plans this autumn, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said exams were the “fairest way” to assess students but they needed to take into account the disruption of the past 18 months. Head teachers said the decision was being made too late, with schools needing to know all the exam arrangements by 1 September.
