The Principal Examiner has resigned and they asked me to step in for this year as it is the last year of the course but they have asked me to apply for the job permanently starting next year. The marking bit should be fine but the writing of GCSE exams is a bit tricky as it involves a lot of meetings with Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) which might get in the way of the day job.

Also have been approached by the Oxford University Press to write exam questions this Autumn. Did you know I was a published author? Somewhere deep in the acknowledgements of a GCSE text book today JK Rowling tomorrow!!

Conservatives - going to abolish QCA to save money but set up independent body to monitor A Levels (that would be QCA Dave)
