Message from AQA re the Physics Higher Tier - Paper 1
The final question on our GCSE Physics (8463) Higher Tier Paper 1 on Thursday 9 June 2022 was about energy transfers and circuits.
Energy transfers were listed in the advance information as being assessed – but circuits were unfortunately listed as not being assessed.
To make sure students aren’t disadvantaged, we’ll be awarding everyone full marks for all parts of the question, which were worth a total of 9 marks.
We’re really sorry and we’re looking at why our checks didn’t pick this up. We’re also doing extra checks on the advance information and question papers for future exams.
Results day will be 25 August 2022.
