Is there a job I can get where all I do is study for and sit exams?
... don't the institutes pay people for marking the exam papers? Next best thing ;)
you could work for the exam boards, sitting all the A levels to spot the incorrect qustions - but you would soon miss us
You realise nobody actually checks the papers? :)
is very good at exams - so they should create the role - especially as there have been more and more examples of incorrect papers over the last few years
I have asked to be an exam marker for the ATT, in particular in a paper I... well, did rather well in... but they politely refused me.
So sad I know, but I think I could sit and mark papers all day, to see how people treat things, how they go wrong and which parts they all trend towards doing well. My old boss used to complain that they were a marker, I always thought they were mad.
If an exam body just wants to let me study a month then sit an exam, changing the subject each time, I would be happy as a duck in a pond! I'm getting exam withdrawal and it isn't pretty...
To become an examiner for the IDTA you need to have a Fellowship in each of Ballroom , Latin and Freestyle dance. Each Fellowship has 4 levels i.e. student, associate, licentiate & Fellow. The exams are modular with each grade having 4 - 6 modules so about 3 x 4 x 5 so about 60 exams in total. All exams are about 1.5 hours in length and an average of 85% must be maintained across all modules for success along with in depth teaching, anatomical and choreography skills. Given a good run you could maybe knock out 4 modules a year which suggests 15 years as a minimum.
If you are a Strictly fan then Len Goodman is a qualified examiner ... as is my lovely wife (one of the youngest to achieve it aged 42).
I am, after all, duck footed.
