Can we trust the re-marking?

26th September 2003 at 01:00
Today we received the changes to our KS2 writing levelsscores. On the official notification sheet from the AQA exam board, checking the first child we noticed that AQA had added scores of 37 and 43 wrong;y to make 70.

How can we trust AQA when they return 21 out of 56 pupils with changed levels in English and an official notification sheet with errors on it?

What other errors are on this sheet which the school may be unaware of? Must schools check all the papers that are sent back to us after being re-marked?
