The process involves each exam script being individually assessed against the criteria specified for each question. Each exam question is marked by Chartered Accountants in one location, over one weekend.Before marking commences, all markers meet and discuss the question they will be marking. This discussion ensures that each member of the marking panel understands the marking criteria against which responses must be assessed. During this meeting, one candidate exam script is randomly selected and a copy of that script is marked by each marker on the marking panel.Once each marker has marked the same script, the marking panel regroups to discuss the marks awarded and consider any aspects of the marking criteria needing further clarification. This process is repeated with another randomly selected candidate script until all members of the panel are applying the marking criteria consistently. Finally, each marker is assigned a batch of scripts to mark.During the process, a minimum of 20% of the marked scripts are audited. This involves one of the marking auditors assessing a marked script. If a discrepancy exists between the original mark and the auditor’s mark, both the marker and the auditor review the script and agree on the final mark. If necessary, a second auditor may be asked to mark the script.
