Keeping it Fair: What Makes a Good Exam Invigilator in UK Schools

Exam invigilators are an integral part of ensuring that exams are conducted in a fair and consistent manner. The role of an invigilator is to supervise and monitor the exam room, ensuring that all students follow the rules and regulations set out by the exam board. In this blog post, we will discuss what makes a good exam invigilator in UK schools.

  1. Knowledgeable and Trained

A good exam invigilator should be knowledgeable about the rules and regulations of the exam they are supervising. They should be familiar with the exam board guidelines, the exam format and timings, and any special requirements for students such as access arrangements or exam concessions. They should also be trained in exam invigilation, including how to deal with any issues that may arise during the exam.

  1. Professionalism and Confidence

A good exam invigilator should be professional and confident in their role. They should present themselves in a professional manner, adhering to the dress code set out by the school. They should also be confident in dealing with any issues that may arise, such as a student who is suspected of cheating or who becomes ill during the exam.

  1. Diligent and Alert

A good exam invigilator should be diligent and alert throughout the exam. They should monitor the exam room, ensuring that all students are following the rules and regulations. They should also be alert to any suspicious behaviour or activities that may indicate cheating, such as a student looking at another student’s paper or using a mobile phone.

  1. Fairness and Impartiality

A good exam invigilator should be fair and impartial in their approach. They should treat all students equally, regardless of their background or ability. They should also ensure that the exam is conducted in a fair and consistent manner, with no students being given an unfair advantage.

In conclusion, a good exam invigilator in UK schools should be knowledgeable, professional, diligent, alert, fair and impartial. By ensuring that these qualities are present, students can be confident that their exams are being conducted in a fair and consistent manner, giving them the best chance to succeed.
