  1. I don’t think the marking was 100% fair; some markers were much harsher than others (I heard Dr Levy grilling people quite intensely, while all our markers were absolutely lovely). I think it needed one or two people who spent less time at each poster but saw all of them to moderate the marks.


    1. Hi Anon – intense grilling does not mean lower marks! [I am a bit jealous about the other lovely markers though :)]
      Each poster will have been marked thrice so there is some built in moderation; if there is discrepancy between the markers, we can look back at the posters/pdf to moderate.

      Thanks for the comment!
