Early in 2013 Ofqual launched a review of the quality of marking of exams in A levels, GCSEs and other academic qualifications in England. We published an interim report on quality of marking in June 2013.
In our final report, we:
- present an in-depth review of the current marking system
- set out a series of next steps and recommendations to improve the quality of marking of GCSEs, A levels and other academic qualifications
- improve the transparency of the exam system
