NMES - Exam Script Scanning

Job Description

As you may be aware it is College policy that undergraduate and taught-postgraduate students are able to request to view copies of their exam scripts once results are released. This can be useful to students for a number of reasons including preparation for a resit examination, to review their mark breakdown or to review comments to identify areas for improvement.

This process is managed in the faculty by students submitting forms to request that scanned copies of their exam scripts are emailed to them.  Tasks would include:

  • Managing the mailbox that receives form requests from students for scans

  • Maintaining the spreadsheet tracking the number of requests and response dates

  • Locating and scanning requested scripts

  • Sending scripts to students by email and answering queries students may have regarding these

  • Liaising with staff in departments regarding student requests to meet with academics to discuss their papers


We would  like to offer our PhD students the opportunity for paid work throughout the year on an ad hoc basis in order to support this process particularly during the summer months and to manage the inbox at other times of year. We would expect to advertise for a few hours each week and would like a pool of PhD students trained and available to take up the work as and when. The exam scripts will be available from the departmental offices at the Strand Campus and Britannia House (Guy's Campus) so you must be able to travel to the different sites as required. 

An introductory session will be provided for successful applicants.

From this year we have also been using a new online marking system and require help with the scanning and uploading of exam scripts into an online marking platform. The main tasks will be paper management, scanning, uploading to the marking system and matching candidate numbers. You will be trained on the process by the TEL (Technology Enhanced Learning) team during the day(s), who will also assist you throughout the tasks. The workflow is designed to be easy to follow; the only requirement, given the high importance of the work (assessment), is excellent attention to detail.

This  scanning for this specific task is planned to be carried out over several days in August in the NMES Faculty Office - Strand Building, 6th floor. The scanning days have not yet been established, but will occur 9 August through 22 August.
