Services Mocks Moderation Service

£18.00 per mock exam paper for GCSE English and Maths
Our new moderation service allows you to provide your students with their mock results whilst supporting your, or your team’s, marking skills. By sending in a sample of your exam papers, our moderators can supply commentaries and reports to help you understand the mark scheme and provide reassurance that your marking is aligned with the Edexcel standard for GCSE English and Maths.

You'll need to submit a sample of around 15% of your own marked papers, which will be reviewed by our team of expert moderators. Your school will then receive script commentaries and the moderation report.

Please note, this exciting new service is available for you to use with your mocks from the autumn term for GCSE English and Maths. 


We'll support you to:

  • Understand the mark scheme and provide reassurance that your marking is aligned with the Pearson Edexcel standard
  • Gain accurate expectations and understanding of levels and progression of learning
  • Maintain grade consistency across cohorts and schools
  • Identify areas that need improvement and that could benefit from additional CPD.
