Old-School Exam Marking

old school exam marking

Excusing the unintentional but nonetheless naff pun of the title, I came across this picture just now from July 2012, my returning to the exam board the bagged GCSE English Literature scripts I had completed marking (there will have been more) including one centre with 230 students and their papers. Now all online, it is a reminder of a past that’s quite different to the present, not least that after 35 years of marking, I am not examining anymore. I was asked if interested in being involved this year – in whatever post-results scenario that could possibly be after no actual national exams having been set – but I am sticking to my decision to call it history.
