It doesn't really effect us it's just an improvement for teachers that the marking schemes will be online for them, don't really think it's anything life changing for us or that it will be marked all that different from what I gather anyway
ya but what about if our answer goes under the line or they can't read our writing. earlier this year we did a DATS test and the answers came out wrong because it was incorrectly marked.(due to the computers not being able to correct it properly)
all we have to worry about is to make sure we only write in blue or black pen and to not write off the lines i.e don't write in the margin as the answers are being scanned and anything written in the margin wont come up.
I don't get what they mean by being tired of getting their lazy asses over to the sec headquarters in Athlone like wooooww if they scanned it they would also be wasting excess paper by printing it out or are they going to mark it on the screen that is about as uncomfortable as it gets
