Missing Script Policy

Missing Examination Script Policy

CILEx processes thousands of examination scripts each year. Candidates’ answer scripts are sent between the examination centres, CILEx, Examiners, marking teams and moderators.

CILEx makes every effort to ensure that the courier services used are professional, efficient and reliable, and that comprehensive tracking systems are in place to ensure the safety of every candidate’s examination script. However, it is acknowledged that despite CILEx’s robust procedures there remains a small risk that a script may be damaged or go missing.

Therefore, as a professional and awarding body, it is essential that CILEx has in place a policy, in the event of a missing or badly damaged script or scripts.

The Security of Examination Scripts balances CILEx’s responsibility to protect the integrity of the professional qualifications alongside its responsibility to ensure the fair and equal treatment of examination candidates.
