Script paper distribution

Our online marking software acts as a front-end to the printing and scanning process for examination centres.

Blank or personalised OCR/ICR/OMR exam papers are accessible through the portal and grouped by examination and/or candidate ready for downloading and printing by the centres.

How it works

Upon logon, users are presented with three main sections:

  • Papers - download personalised PDF exam papers allocated to the centre
  • Scanning - use eScan to scan and upload examination scripts
  • Assessments - view scanned candidate scripts on-screen and review/reconcile issues or missing exam papers

Centres can download paper packs or reprint individual candidates’ exam papers. This is typically used when paper copies have either been lost or damaged prior to the exam taking place. The download page provides session, description, create date and status information about each PDF. Guidance on printing exam papers is provided in addition to instructions for completing exam papers to candidates, invigilators and interlocutors.

Performing much of the reconciliation work to help expedite script processing, the portal improves efficiency as the centres handle exceptions directly.
