How should completed exam scripts be despatched?

Modified on Mon, 23 Oct 2023 at 03:40 PM

Prep schools sending scripts to be marked by senior schools should liaise with the senior schools to establish how and when they would like the scripts sent. Scripts may be posted at the end of each examination day, or scanned and emailed at the end of each examination day, with hard copies being sent in one batch at the end of the week. 

All hard copies of scripts should be sealed and sent by secure, guaranteed next-day delivery to the relevant senior school.


Sitting centres outside the UK should check with the relevant senior school how they wish to receive candidates’ examination scripts. Some senior schools may require overseas sitting centres to scan, fax, email or post candidates’ examination scripts on a daily basis. Others may require scripts to be posted in a single packet on the last day of the examination period and sent by the quickest and most reliable service.


Prep schools marking scripts internally should liaise with the relevant senior schools in advance of the examination period to establish their requirements in respect of the despatch of scripts and the provision of results.

Examination scripts should NOT be sent to the ISEB office for marking.
