Help! I will ring exam board first thing in the morning, but I'm wondering if any of you have experienced anything similar. I have lost, never to be returned, a speaking recording for one of my GCSE pupils. My class only has 19 pupils so all candidates' work is to be sent to moderator by 7th May (sampling ponly happens when cohort more than 20 pupils). But this one is now lost, gone, forever. I have been to IT technicians, it is non-retrievable. And yes I know I'm very very very stupid for not having backed these up. Is there any chance AQA will allow me to send recordings of 18 candidates and accept my marks for the 19th without hearing the recording?
