I've been sent an email chain originating from a student who has uncovered (in their own words) "failures in the exam marking process" across three seperate exams they sat this year. Issue being around the exam papers not beig marked in accordance with the published exam marking rules the institute publish. In one case, they got 59 out of 100 for an exam (the pass mark was 60), but their paper was not marked a third time, which is what the Institute say they will do with a borderline script in the current student handbook (see page 66): https://www.actuaries.org.uk/documents/student-handbook-20152016 "Once the initial pass mark has been decided then scripts which are around the borderline will be marked a third or possibly fourth time to ensure that the examiners are happy with the proposed pass mark. Where the first two markers disagree a script will also be third marked by an examiner." They only found out about this by doing a Subject Access Request for the marks and all supporting information under the Data Protection Act, which gave a free-of-charge (and what looks like very detailed) breakdown of their scores from the two markers including the markers comments. I'm now worried whether my borderline paper really was marked a third/fourth time in April as I thought! My colleague who forwarded the email to me said lots of students have been sending a Subject Access Request to the institute because of their concerns, but has anyone here done this and also uncovered any marking irregularities? Given this happened on three seperate exams for an individual, it's clearly not a one-off. The exams in question were: CA2 sat in May 2016 SA4 sat in April 2016, and CA3 sat at some point in 2016. but may affect all exams that have been sat! Given the amount of hours we put in to study, the least the Institute can do is follow their own marking policy, so would be interested to know if anyone else is aware of this issue?
