By what time are they ACTUALLY marked? I know they’re scanned electronically but who marks them and how?

Depends on the exam board and the exam but for example english language..

Each question gets scanned individually and whole load of responses to a single question get allocated to one examiner that marks each of them,

so one examiner is allocated for example question 6 and will receive about 200 or so responses to question 6 to mark etc..

As someone previously replied, but yes, I can confirm that the paper are scanned in (which is why you need to use black ink) and the examiners will get given one question generally and will mark that question I think. I think tick boxes are automatically marked by the computer.
