Hello, we've sent forward the marks for the speaking assessments which were fortunately quite good this year. However, the we're in a bit of a panic because one of my teacher friends at another school said that they had to record each candidate on a webcam (have a video recording of the speaking assessment taking place) as well as an audio recording of the assessment. We haven't done a video recording for any of the candidates; is this compulsory? Does AQA accept video recordings of the assessment and moderate them, even though it isn't compulsory? Thanks in advance; I hope this is okay!
