One of the major impacts of the pandemic on schools and colleges has been the disruption to examinations. The last summer exam series took place in 2019, with teachers and students adapting to a system of Centre/Teacher Assessed Grades (CAGs/TAGs) for the awarding of grades in 2020 and 2021.
As many schools/colleges will testify, the CAGs/TAGs system was not without its difficulties so a return to a summer exams series is most welcome. However, reverting to written timetabled examinations after such a lengthy absence is also providing some challenges for many schools and colleges. One of these is recruiting and retaining invigilators.
