Earn Extra Money Being an Exam Invigilator

Ways to get the work

Most education authorities, colleges and universities will recruit invigilators prior for their May-June and January exam periods, therefore the weeks or months before then are the very best time for you to start looking.

When you yourself have a child at school, watch out for just about any announcements in the institution newsletter Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment 2038 .Everyone can take a look at the local borough council website for positions at local schools, that'll need people to oversee GCSE and A-level exams. You could even contact the local schools straight to see if they need extra help.

For colleges, universities and adult education authorities, seek out vacancies on their individual websites. Many also proceed through recruitment agencies or advertise on job websites, so try your luck with one of these (tip: a fast search on the Net for'exam invigilators'should show the absolute most current crop of positions). Gumtree might also be a good place to consider adverts.

Obviously, school exams will undoubtedly be during school hours, while university exams may run until a little later, rendering it an ideal temporary work for part-timers, retirees or stay-at-home parents.

Training is provided so you do not need any experience - basically if you're responsible and you're open to work, you're in with an excellent shot. Some places will require a CRB check, depending on their individual policies. This is tricky to find short notice but if you ask around ahead of time you should be able to get yours with time for exam season. Based on whether you will need a standard or enhanced CRB check, it takes between ten days and four weeks to process.

Just how much could you make?

Just how much you get with by the end of the time scale really depends on what many exams you can sit in on. The rates of pay vary but you can expect anything between £7 to £10 per hour - universities may offer more.

So, for example, if you're to sit in on two three-hour exams a day over a two week period at the maximum pay rate, you might finish off with £600. Not too shabby for pacing up and down.

What does it involve?

There is really a much more to exam invigilating than turning around open the doors or shouting'pens down!' at the end. As we said, training will generally be provided prior to the exam period starts and each school or university will doubtless have their very own procedures to check out, but listed below are a few of the basics:

Before the exam

You'll have to reach early, half an hour to an hour prior to the exam is due to begin, to setup the exam room. This may likely include:


Placing answer booklets and question papers on each desk.
Checking all seats are labelled correctly.
Knowing what equipment students are allowed (Calculators? Extra paper? Is it an open book exam?)
Put up regulation notices, seating allocations, exam start and finish times, and ensure clocks are visible and working.
If it's a sizable exam hall, there will probably be a couple of invigilators to help you divide how many tables every one of you will oversee.
Start of the exam



Direct students for their seats and let them know where you should leave their bags.
Confiscate any things that aren't allowed, such as revision notes, text books, calculators (unless otherwise allowed), and needless to say, any mobile phones.
Read exam regulations to students and give out any specific exam instructions.
Make certain no body starts reading or writing prior to the start time.
Check the ID of all students and marking their attendance (you will generally have to share with any office immediately if any students are absent).
Make certain no-one goes into or out of the room prior to the allowed time has passed.
Throughout the exam


This is the place where a little tedium may set in. You have to remain alert throughout the entire exam, to keep on the lookout for students who need help, or people who might be using significantly less than honest means to finish their paper. This implies you CANNOT utilize the time for you to read or write yourself, and not at all stand around chatting with the other invigilators. You will need to:


Circulate the room regularly - this is where those soft-soled shoes come in handy!
Observe the students, but try not to stand reading over their shoulders.
Escort students to the toilet if necessary.
Hand out extra paper or answer booklets if requested.
Make certain there's no talking and that any disruptions (such as loud noises outside) are cared for as quickly as possible.
Announce once the exam time is nearly finished.
Should you suspect students of cheating, it is probable every person institution has their very own procedure for working with it that you need to follow.


With respect to the length of a test, you might be permitted to have a short break.

End of the exam


Collect all answer sheets and question papers BEFORE dismissing the students.
Make certain answer sheets come in the best order (it might be by ID number or classes) before returning them to the office.
