It’s not too late to support students by providing your expertise this summer. The last couple of years have been a tough test for young people, and teachers like you have helped them get through it. Now they need you again – as an examiner.

Exam boards are in the process of finalising their teams for this summer’s activity and you could be part of their teams of experts involved in delivering results this summer. Applications are particularly welcomed in the following subject areas:

As an examiner, you’ll be part of a team that ensures students receive the results they deserve. And you stand to benefit from the experience as well. Examining will give you:

  • a chance to network with other subject experts
  • an insight into the latest approaches to how your subject is assessed


All this and you’ll also earn some extra income for approximately three weeks of work.

Further information about the role of examining can be found on the JCQ Become an Examiner  webpages. For specific information about the required roles and criteria to examine for each examination board, refer directly to their dedicated webpages – these can be accessed via the quick links on the JCQ Become an Examiner webpage.
