Hi I had my unit 3 performance last night and although I feel the students performed really well; I was a bit disappointed in my examiner because I felt that there was too long a gap between group performances and was wondering if anyone else had had this experience. I had more students last year and the gap wasn't as long as it was last night. I had three groups yesterday and the examiner had 30 minutes marking time between groups; last year i had 31 and the examiner took only 10-15 minutes between groups. Apparently examiners have been told that they are to take 5 minutes per candidate per group between performances.....is this right or is it just a suggestion? I'm an AS examiner and I'm not told this sort of specific info but what's more; I cannot find this specific information anywhere. I've complained to Edexcel but I'm not holding my breath for a suitable reply..... grrrrr!!!!
