Marking

  1. H1.1 For each qualification which it makes available, an awarding organisation must have in place effective arrangements to ensure that, as far as possible, the criteria against which Learners performance will be differentiated are
    1. (a) understood by Assessors and accurately applied, and
    2. (b) applied consistently by Assessors, regardless of the identity of the Assessor, Learner or Centre.

Marking options

  1. H1.2 Where
    1. (a) an awarding organisation offers an option as to tasks which may be completed by a Learner in an assessment or as to assessments which may be completed by the Learner (including units),
    2. (b) the awarding organisation reasonably concludes that there is a material inconsistency between the Level of Demand of two optional tasks or assessments, and
    3. (c) it is likely that the inconsistency will prejudice a group of Learners,
  2. the awarding organisation must make a reasonable alteration to the criteria against which Learners performance will be differentiated for the optional task or assessment so as to prevent that prejudice from occurring.

H1.3 Where such a reasonable alteration is made for an optional task or assessment, an awarding organisation must ensure that the alteration is applied uniformly in the marking of every task or assessment in relation to which a Learner has taken that option.

There is currently no guidance on complying with these Conditions
