ACCA undertakes many checks and controls during the marking process to ensure that all exam results are accurate.
Before the marking starts, markers attend a meeting with the examiner to discuss the exam paper and agree a detailed marking scheme.
The examiner moderates the marking process closely and there are various steps in place during this process to enable the examiner to review marked scripts to ensure that the marking scheme is being applied consistently by all markers.
In addition the examiner pays special attention to scripts where marginal marks have been awarded. Checks are also built in to the marking software used by markers to ensure that each question on your script has been marked, the marks have been recorded against the correct question and that the total for the final mark is correct.
