Rebel examiner is a marked man
It therefore came as a bit of a surprise to Mr Oliver, who teaches at an Oxfordshire comprehensive, to receive a batch of Edexcel Shakespeare A-level papers for marking, over two weeks after his resignation letter.
A spokeswoman for Edexcel said schools sent their scripts directly to the examiner allocated to them: "We would have sent stickers with his name on them and then sent stickers with the new examiner's name on. A school has put the wrong stickers on. This is what happens when people cancel their contracts as late as Mr Oliver did."
