This meeting was called by SIMS to look into the practice of returning two marks to the same exam board.
- Decide how return of multiple marks will be handled by EMA / SIMS
|30 mins||Multiple marks return||All|
There was some discussion about multiple marks return:
- It was generally agreed that there should only be one mark per board, and that this should be achieved by having further boards (supplementary boards). More than one board could potentially sit at the same meeting to minimise the orgainisational burden.
Tricia sent out an email summarising this meeting the afternoon after it was held:
A meeting was held today to discuss this practice and the following was concluded.
Academic Departments will be able to provide two marks at the same time of year however they would need to ensure that they return them for a different board sequence.
Exam Board Meeting Mark
14 June Board (Sequence 1) 30
14 June Board (Sequence 2) 50
The second board is a supplementary board.
This practice will ensure that EMA and MyStrathclyde will only deal with one mark for each class per Exam Board meeting.
