- Richard Garrett, Director for Policy & Strategic Relationships, Ofqual
In 2016 Ofqual introduced the current rules for the way concerns about a candidate’s GCSE, AS or A level marks are considered by exam boards. Proposed "small changes" to "enhance" these rules are currently being considered following a public consultation. A key concern for teachers, students and parents alike, how should schools & colleges approach the remarking and appeals process?
Join Westminster Briefing on 9 July for an up to date brief on how exam boards must handle reviews of marking, moderation and appeals, considerations schools & colleges should make when developing their own remarking & appeals procedures, and current good practice in managing exams more generally.
Key issues to be covered include:
- Rules for handling reviews of marking, moderation & appeals and what they mean for schools
- Developing and communicating a remarking & appeals policy
- Paying for remarking and appeals
- Handling and storing exam papers
- Recruiting, training and managing invigilators
- Supporting students with additional needs
- Applying for special considerations
- Planning for disruptions
- Pro-actively tackling mobile phone misuse
The morning sessions will focus on remarks & appeals, specifically regulations governing how exam boards must handle them and considerations schools & colleges should make when developing their own procedures.
The afternoon session share examine management good practice and what different schools & colleges can learn from each other.
