Resources to help students prepare for exams and assessments
Information for students
Ofqual has published a student guide, which contains information on the arrangements in place for awarding both GCSE, AS and A levels, and vocational and other qualifications, in 2022. We’d be really grateful if you could point students to it, as well as the other resources we’ve published this year to support them which include:
- a guide to coping with exam pressure, produced with Professor David Putwain, a researcher (and a former school and college teacher) at Liverpool John Moores University
- a blog by Professor Kevin Woods and Dr Tee McCaldin outlining the sorts of things that might help students to prepare for exams
- videos on our social media channels of tips for students from other students
As this will be the first time that many students have taken formal exams, it’s also important that they’re fully aware of the rules that apply in the exam hall— and in particular that students don’t bring in their watches or other prohibited devices such as mobile phones.
