Just wondering whether anyone knew when our exams will be fully marked or if they already have been by now?
I'm guessing our courseworks would have all been moderated by now having being sent off in May right?

Coursework has definitely been moderated though.

The standardisation meeting for Edexcel is Aug 7. With finalised grade boundaries for all subjects released to the admin dept around Aug 9. With this in mind I'd say maybe Aug 5 for all papers to have been marked and the marks logged.

I think you mean the ‘awarding meeting’ – as the standardisation meetings were a while back.

This is the meeting where grade boundaries are discussed and agreed on, I hope the examiners are in a good mood that day! :p:

Yes thats the one. The one where the boundaries are set is Aug 9th according to their website.

No, standardisation is only a week after the exams are over and have been delivered to examiners.

They mark like 8 exam papers and their marking is standardised. Examiners are tested to make sure they can apply the mark scheme properly, and tricky points in the mark scheme are explained etc.

Hope this explains it.

Most exam scripts will be marked by now. Examiners are allocated something like 3-4 weeks to mark their scripts, so really the only ones which should be left now are the exams which took place at the end of June Examiners set the grade boundaries over one or two days at the awarding meeting at the end of July/beginning of August, and results slips are printed around the first/second week of August
