Consultation description

We are consulting on changes to our rules about how exam boards should conduct reviews of marking, moderation and appeals.

The changes we propose respond to issues we have seen in the first two years of operation of these rules, aim to make our rules easier to follow and bring them in line with a version of the rules which we have already introduced for Technical Qualifications.
