    Hi All,

    I'm sure I read on here at some point about there being work available marking exam papers and as exams are just around the corner I thought I would see if anyone knew anything about it - so any ideas on who I would contact and what qualifications you would need.

    I'm looking for a bit of work that I can do in my own time.

    Thanks.

    Your best bet is to contact the exam boards (most of them have websites), see if they need examiners in your subject for the next session. They will also be able to advise you of the specific experience/qualifications they require.

    There's also a limit to how much you can consider it 'your own time' - there will be a host of marking meetings to attend beforehand, and very tight deadlines to meet!
    I'm a Board Guide on the Cutting Tax; Charities; Small Biz & Charity Organisers; and Silver Savers boards, which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move and merge threads there. However, do remember, Board Guides don't read every post. If you spot an inappropriate or illegal post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com.

    You usually need to have taught the subject as recently as two years ago, unless times have changed from when my husband did it.

    That's if you're talking about GCSE/A level marking.

    Does anyone know how to become a SATS marker? Do you have to be a serving teacher? Can supply teachers do it?

    Don't bother. You will earn more per hour stacking shelves at the local supermarket.

    A lot of the highly public problems with exam boards recently are because they do not pay enough to attract good people to marking.
