Remuneration varies per unit, based on the amount of time marking that script is likely to take. Details of the exact fees would be given in any invitation to mark for a specific series.
We aim to inform you of the outcome of your application within 3 weeks. If you are successful your details will be added to our list of approved assessors. Our deployment team would then contact you with further details as an appropriate opportunity becomes available. Invitations for marking will usually be sent from December through to May dependent upon the requirements for each unit.
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee marking for a particular series. However, if we have been unable to offer you anything for the forthcoming series you would remain on our list for consideration for the next available series.
