    I know someone who marks OCR Physics papers. They have to mark 60 mark papers in 6 minutes and get paid about £2 or so for that. So there is definitely an incentive to mark them quickly.
    Your marking on the actual exam papers isn't checked very thoroughly as there are so many papers to mark, but before you qualify to mark you have to mark tonnes of specimen answers, and if you are not accurate enough then you don't get to mark. So in theory you could mark them pretty wrong :erm:
