The changes are designed to reduce the pressure on teachers and students in the 2021/22 academic year, and to safeguard against ongoing public health concerns.
Please read this information alongside the specification.
Ofqual have confirmed that students taking History B (School History Project) in summer 2022 will not have to study and will not be assessed on all the content of the full course:
Students must complete the British depth study and three other studies from a choice of four to be awarded OCR’s GCSE History B in summer 2022.

Please see the What has changed document for the assessment objective weightings and entry codes for summer 2022.
Please note that some combinations are still prohibited. As in previous years British and wider world depth studies must be taken from different eras. This means that:
We have revised our sample assessment materials (SAMs) showing the new structure for summer 2022. Please refer to our updated SAMs for 2022 to see the new assessment structure.
