    I have given up. Yes, I need the money but I can't take any more.

    Yes. Aiming to do some extra marking until there's no scripts left to mark since I need the money too (why else would anyone do it?).

    Still going. Being selective about which questions I mark because some responses send me into the depths of depression.

    I've been paid in dribs and drabs since June 30th.... scripts dried up mid-July (though managed an extra 140 on top of my allocation - was planning to buy something nice, but then the car needed a new set of tyres...)

    I am seriously impressed by anyone who managed more than their allocation. I didn't meet mine and my brain was still custard by the end of it.

    grouch - if you didn't manage to mark about 3/4 of your allocation then you might not get paid until the end of the process; when all the bonuses are paid. It might even be after the results are out!

    And it's finally over. Thank God!

    Anyone else surprised that it took this long for the exams to be marked? Probably a consequence of doubling the number of exams with the new specification.

    I did more than 75%
    I emailed and it turns out that they didn't have my details, apparently.

    In a way it was expected. I wonder how many remarks will be requested. I would not be surprised if it is a huge number again.

    Oh good. Hope you get it sorted.
