Whilst bias will always occur, standards are set to determine what level of writing deserves such a mark. Even if there are 2 people, what if they are almost binary opposites; maybe an average of the two is lower than what most other markers would give. Although, I think you should be safe, knowing that they standardize and follow a marking criteria.
Only if the mark is of +-20% that it, if there is a difference of more than 4 marks then it will go to a senior marker. So a 16/20 and a 12/20 would give 14/20.In essay writing subjects, all essays are double marked. In cases where there is a discrepency, a third senior marker will mark the paper.
no their judgment isnt final, his mark gets averaged with the other two marks
Your script is attached with two marking sheets, the first marker marks it, it is ripped off, and returned to the second. They do not know the marks that were given.I'm pretty sure you get the average of the two and the other marker doesnt know the mark from the first marker.
