    It's fitting actually, I promised 3 "punishments" for 3 conditions, so I guess I'll have to pick just one, m'lord.

    Remarking A level papers.

    I read an article on this a while back (but I cannot remember where - I just searched and came up empty) but it was by a former marker at AQA. They commented that remarked exams 1/2 the time drop in score (by an average of 8 points), stay the same 1/4 of the time and increase by an average of 2 points for the others. The reason for this skewed data is that the initial markers tend to err on the generous side and on remarking do not.

    I can't find the article when I search for it now. But the gist of the piece was that you ask for a remark when it is really important and especially no negative consequences if you drop in score. The author was pretty adamant that of course errors occur but that the initial markings tend to be overly generous and remarkings are not.

    Anyway, food for thought as they say.

    Is it possible to reorder the script and then remark upon reflection?

    You can ask for a photocopy of the script. That then gives you the option of a remark if you wish to.

    This isn't possible where I live. Once you have asked for access of the script, you cannot remark anymore. Kind of beats the point, really. :dontknow: You have to remark completely on your intuition unfortunately. I'm not sure if this would apply to him, though.

    I think there's a difference between getting a copy of the script/access to the script sent to you and getting a photocopy of the script. The latter allows you to re-mark, the former doesn't. (AFAIK).
