  • Help organise students at the start and finish of each exam
  • Ensure that the conduct of the exam takes place within the guidelines set down by JCQ (relevant documents will be supplied)

  • Whilst not disrupting the candidates it is important to be vigilant, particularly regarding requests for additional paper, toilet breaks
  • If invigilators suspect malpractice is taking place they should refer the matter to the Exams Manager
