The university rightly aims for all assessments to be marked, moderated and returned within 15 working days, which can be a logistic nightmare with multiple marking teams and large numbers of papers. The deadlines for course and programme changes fall around this period, and sometimes, markers are mandated to prepare for and attend meetings/training. This makes the 15 day aim next to impossible (which may be a major issue with the NSS in January). If exam marking time was prioritised and this period blocked out, the marking deadline would be more achievable.
