We've made some updates for GCSE Geography A (J383) and GCSE Geography B (J384).
In the Understanding the changes to the exam papers section of our Changes for 2022 web pages for GCSE Geography A and B, we've added the following clarification for Component 03:
For GCSE Geography (A and B) in Component 03, the questions will not draw content from the optional themes/topics. If students choose to include information in their answers from the optional theme(s)/topics(s), then they would be credited for this, if it’s relevant to the question.
