I have just finished marking for Edexcel and have to say really did not enjoy it this year. Seemed to be working later to get my allocation done. I ground my way through it and as always contributed to mark the pool. The pool stayed open for five days last year it was 24hours. I looked at the money earned which is a large part of why I sacrifice July Evenings and staff leaving doos where the amount I earned has fallen. Not only that the allocation for the Contract rose by 65%. Each questions reimbursement dropped one by almost 50%. The allocation I completed on last year's figures would have netted me an extra £517.56. that is without the extra Pool marking. Next year I shall have to question whether I will be marking for Edexcel?
