In the UK, there were normal exams in 2019, then "centre assessed" or "teacher assessed" grades (i.e. no exams) in 2020 and 2021. In 2022 there was a return to exams, but modifications were made to allow for the fact that students had been impacted by Covid. This year, there are some very minor modifications - but it's essentially a set of normal exams. Ofqual (which are responsible for qualifications) have said that exam boards will set the grade boundaries such that you are - on average - just as likely to get a particular grade in 2023 as you would have been in 2019. So they might tweak the grade boundaries slightly to achieve this. But they might not - it depends on how everyone does.
