At the end of the retention period, data are either destroyed or anonymised and used for statistical analysis.

Other information, including tickmarks made on scripts and further detailed breakdown of marks was considered to be relatively meaningless as an indication of examination performance, given the moderation processes that are used in determining a class by Examiners.   These data may in some circumstances be retained and students should apply for this further information according to the relevant Departmental Examinations Data Retention Policy.

Where any automated compiling or processing of marks is used, the results are subsequently deliberated by the Board of Examiners responsible.
