Examinations Unit: Information for Invigilators

The role of Invigilator would suit someone who enjoys mixing with people, has the confidence to enforce the regulations if necessary and deal effectively and promptly with any problems that present themselves during the examination.

New invigilators are never required to work on their own until they are fully confident and are placed with experienced Invigilators for on the job training. All Invigilators are given a handbook detailing Anglia Ruskin's policy and regulations for examinations.

Applicants should be confident dealing with groups of students. The size of examinations varies from one to 100 and invigilators should be able to cover all sizes of groups. Two or more invigilators are allocated to each examination with more than 30 students, with as many as four invigilators presiding over examinations with 100 students.

We also arrange examinations for students with individual requirements. These examinations are usually no larger than five people and are run on a more informal basis. The invigilators for these examinations should be sympathetic to the needs of the student and yet ensure that the integrity of the examination is not compromised.

Invigilators are required to complete various reports and registers. These are kept as the official record of attendance and any events during the examination. Accurate record keeping is therefore essential.

The main responsibilities of an invigilator are to:

  • Invigilate examinations in accordance with the rules and guidelines laid out in the Invigilators Handbook.
  • Be sympathetic to the needs of the students
  • Ensure Anglia Ruskin's regulations are not compromised
  • Deal effectively and promptly with any problems that arise during the examinations
  • Remain vigilant at all times during the examinations, invigilators are not permitted to read or engage in any other activity which would divert their attention away from the students.
  • Maintain security of examination papers, stationery and scripts
  • Be familiar with Anglia Ruskin's fire & evacuation procedures.
