Students taking GCSE and A-levels in England next year will have the opportunity to choose topics and inform them of the “key points” of the exam in advance to “maximize fairness.” The Department of Education (DfE) stated that its purpose is to “help students reach their potential” after learning is interrupted during COVID. After consulting more than 6000 responses, it is decided that GCSE English literature, history and ancient history will have “topic selection”, and GCSE geography will have “content selection”. In most subjects of GCSE, AS, and A-levels, advance information on “emphasis on exam content” will be provided in the spring. “Supporting materials” will be provided in the math, physics, and comprehensive science exams, including formula tables. Among the respondents who responded to the consultation, more than 90% of students and parents agreed to provide information in advance, and about 80% agreed to provide topic selection.
