In defining our approach to examining Cambridge Pre-U in June 2022, we have been guided by subject decisions published by Ofqual. The following information details how these subject decisions will apply to Cambridge Pre-U subjects in the run-up to the June 2022 exam series.
We will produce Advance Information in the majority of Cambridge Pre-U subjects, in line with the Department for Education’s policy decision in England. Advance Information will not be published for Global Perspectives and Art and Design due to the nature of the syllabus content and the assessment.
We will make advance information available on our public website by 7 February 2022 at the latest, and we will write to you when this information is available so that you can plan students' revision accordingly.
We will make adjustments for the subjects listed below along the same principles as those applied to equivalent UK A Levels. The specific adaptations will reflect differences between A Level and Cambridge Pre- U with regard to content and assessment requirements.
We will organise the Speaking tests to take place remotely via an online meeting link. We appreciate this differs from the Ofqual position, which stipulates that speaking tests should return to normal if pandemic conditions allow, and this may be practicable where teachers are assessing their students. However, Cambridge Pre-U requires the attendance of external examiners, and we have to consider the safety and practicalities for our specialists who would potentially be attending multiple schools in person, and the administrative burden for schools in arranging and accommodating these visits.
We will extend the deadline for Cambridge Pre-U Art History for the June 2022 series, as we did for June 2021. We hope that this affords more time to students whose work may have been disrupted by the pandemic.
The submission date for (9799), Paper 4 (Personal Investigation) has been moved from 15 February to 31 March 2022.
