The Exams Office was developed by former Department for Education staff who have extensive experience in the field of exams management who previously worked for the National Assessment Agency (NAA), Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA) and the Exams Delivery Support Unit (EDSU)

Our aim is to support Exams Officers in their everyday role with quality resources and a membership price which is affordable and represents excellent value for money

The Exams Office was launched in February 2014 by its founders – Jugjit Chima (previously National Manager of EDSU’s Centre Support Field Team), Nicholas Marr (previously Head of Exams Officer Training at EDSU) and Jean Passmore (previously Centre Support Officer at EDSU). They are supported by ex-EDSU Centre Support Officers and serving Exams Officers.

Numerous focus groups were held before devising the support offering provided by The Exams Office. We listened to what the exams officer community wanted, and we hope that we have delivered a support offering which helps every exams officer in their everyday role

The Exams Office has three core principles

  • To produce quality resources to support exams officers 
  • To save our members time
  • To ease the pressure on centre budgets
