Autumn and LSA Boards of Examiners

1 September 2023

PGT External Examiners in their final year do not require an extension to attend Autumn BoEs

Note on PGT and Late Summer Assessment (LSA) Boards reviewing assessments relating to 2022/23 AY.

***For PGT External Examiners (EE) in their final year***

PGT EEs complete their duties after the Final Board has met and therefore are still active for the current 2022/23 External Examining session for BoE meetings that occur during the coming Autumn term (2023). There is no need to request an extension for those External Examiners to complete the forthcoming PGT BoE meeting, even if this meeting takes place after 31st August 2023.

On Portico we are required to set up EEs to start on 1st September YYYY for a four-year period to finish by 31st August YYYY, however the PGT EEs are still valid for the Autumn term Boards. The Data Hub reflects the External Examining AY and not necessarily the current AY which may cause some confusion over the start and end dates of an EE.

***UG External Examiners (EE)***

Those EEs active in the Summer Boards are also the same ones for any LSA Board requirements. There is no need to appoint any new EEs for the LSA period even if on Portico their record shows they are finishing 31 August 2023.
