Summer exam series 2022


Throughout the Summer of 2022 the Children, Young People and Education Committee monitored the exam series.


In July 2022 we wrote to Qualifications Wales (PDF 144KB) and the WJEC (PDF 144KB) to ask about concerns that had been raised to us by a member of the public and other issues reported in the media (such as missing parts of exams or unreasonably difficult questions).


On the 14 July 2022 the Minister for Education and Welsh Language attended Committee, Members asked questions regarding the summer exam series. A transcript from the meeting is available.


Qualifications Wales and the WJEC appeared before Committee on 21 September 2022 to give evidence about the summer exams. Following the session, the Committee wrote (PDF 190KB) to Qualifications Wales and a response (PDF191KB) was received. 


A transcript from the meeting is available.


The Committee will continue to keep an eye on exams and assessments as we transition to pre-pandemic ways of assessing learners.
