We were expecting the usual 12 samples and instead they asked for 50 [part folders from mostly different pupils]. I've been working flat out for two weeks as we still had Y11 in school and I had extra classes with them as one member of staff has been on long term sick since January [top set], another is part time and the other is an NQT - we've also just had a Departmental Ofsted so we were really behind. Anyway, I finished her sample yesterday [having gone off sick myself with exhaustion and stress] and I sent it in to school this am to be moderated quickly before it was sent off. Unfortunately, the exams officer got hold of it and sent it off before that happened; there's no evidence of moderation there except my marking and comments. Question: Do I phone the board and explain?
