The joy of marking mocks…..

Yay, exam season is just around the corner so it must be time to mark those highly indicative mock exams *groans*. 

I appear to have been hit with the good luck stick and have a mere 120 scripts to mark. Again – yay.

I’d like to say I have a quick win technique here. I’d like to.

Unfortunately my coping mechanism consists of little and often with the TV/YouTube on in the background. One question at break, two guestion at lunch and 3 questions after school. At this rate I get through almost a set of papers per day – on a good day, bearing in mind they’re split into two piles.

You’d never recommend it to your pupils would you (?) – but then in all fairness for some of them doing any work in their own time at all would be an improvement!

My aim is to get them done in the next two days before the Easter break. We’ll see………

Do you have any quick wins or tips when your paper marking spikes?
