Edexcel announces multiple-choice exam marking

Edexcel, Britain’s largest examination board, who were awarded a contract to re-mark disputed test papers following the 2008 marking debacle, has announced plans to streamline this years’ assessments. 

 In order avoid another farce and allow a quick and efficient processing of exam papers for 2009, the company will introduce a multiple-choice marking scheme.  When grading a test paper, exam markers will be required to score each answer by choosing one of three options:-

 a: Correct

 b: Incorrect

 c: Don’t Know

 The scheme is expected to be rolled out across the national curriculum, from GCSE exams to vocational BTEC assessments, in time for the Easter school holidays.
