Exams officers hold a number of important responsibilities when organising internal and external examinations, with many of these duties falling outside the exam hall. 

For example, you must ensure that exam periods are administratively sound, with a planned calendar detailing dates, times and locations. It will also be up to you to recruit invigilators and provide them training in advance. 

You may also need to liaise with exam boards and school leadership teams, as well as SEN professionals to support candidates with special needs.
