Exam Papers

There are three periods of the year when students are required to sit exams: the mid-year assessment period in January, the year-end assessment period in May-June, and the exam re-sit period in late August-September.

To ensure that exam papers are received by schools and colleges on time and are kept secure we ensure that our project team:

  • Meet all deadlines for testing and approval of papers
  • Have all staff involved sign an NDA
  • Only allow approved staff access to the printing area while papers are being produced
  • Ensure Management Intelligence (MI) is sent out on a daily basis
  • Ensure traceability of all papers
  • Dispose of all waste securely, including printing plates

As a PCI compliant company our secure printing standards meet all the necessary requirements and we work with leading Banks, Insurance companies and Government Bodies, including the Standards and Testing Agency.
