The examination board

The Examination Board shall operate under the IAPS Examination Board Terms of Reference. The Board will be chaired by the senior member of the School on duty on the day.  The Board shall consist of the Lead Examiners present on the day, any nominated Lead Panel Examiners, plus co-opted specialists.  The aim of the Examination Board will be to review the agreed outcomes and comments to ensure that there is consistency in the decision-making process applied by each assessment panel.

The recommended outcomes will then be forwarded to the Head of School for ratification.
