Andrew Hall quizzed by students in the build-up to exam results
Published: Tuesday 30 Jul 2013
Our Chief Executive Andrew Hall took part in a live question and answer session on The Student Room website on Thursday 25 July.
The hour-long session saw Andrew respond to 20 questions from students on a wide range of topics, including how exam papers are marked, the use of technology in exams and the challenges of running such a large organisation.
The Student Room has previously hosted sessions with Olympian Rebecca Adlington and writer and actress Miranda Hart, and invited Andrew into the hot seat because students are very focused on exam results at the moment.
There were 10,000 page views and over 150 posts on the Q& A forum, including a number of positive responses from students, with one thanking Andrew for his detailed response to a question, saying it had given him much more confidence about how exams are marked.
There were also messages from other users who thanked The Student Room for organising the Q&A as it was "really interesting to see exams from a different perspective other than that of the candidates."
