Y11 Curriculum Update

I am writing to you to give you an update on the curriculum and exam expectations for Year 11 students this year. Ofqual have consulted on many aspects of this and full details of their conclusions are linked here. Pages 14-18 summarise the changes across all GCSE subjects. We are still waiting to hear decisions around the curriculum in Health and Social Care, IT and Children’s Play, Learning and Development. 

The main headlines are

  • There will be no change to both the number of exams and the length of the exams that students will take in each subject next summer
  • There will be no additional optional questions included on almost all subject exams next summer
