Do you know how we mark and grade exams?
Published: Thursday 8 Aug 2013
With exam results fast approaching, it's a good time to take a look at our film that explains how we mark and grade exams.
We created this short animation to help explain to students and parents how this important part of the exam system works. We want to make the system as open and transparent as possible.
Most people probably know that their exams are marked by examiners. But the process for setting grade boundaries, which is just as important, is likely to be a bit of a mystery. So, we hope this short film demystifies the process, and helps explain the difference between marking papers and the awarding of grades.
