What is the marking service?

At Bright Light Education, we have worked hard to create detailed and accurate answer schemes for many of the schools’ English and maths papers, and consequently we are able to offer a marking service for past papers.

With English papers, as well as marking the paper in detail, we give personal feedback for how the child can improve their creative writing skills.

With maths papers, we are able to show methods for incorrect answers.


Marking English Paper (comprehension + creative writing): £30

Marking English Paper (multiple-choice comprehension + creative writing): £25

Marking Creative Writing section OR Comprehension section only: £15

Marking Maths Paper: £20

How does it work?

Step 1: Contact us by phone or email to make an initial enquiry. Please provide us with the details of the paper that you want marking and the time-frame, so that we can ensure that we are available to help you.
Step 2: Scan and email us the paper that you want marking (info@brightlighteducation.co.uk).
Step 3: We will confirm that we have received your paper and we will provide you with our bank details for you to make the payment in advance.
Step 4: We will mark the paper within your specified time-frame. We will then scan and email it back to you.

Please note:

Your paper will be marked by a qualified teacher who is highly experienced at marking Entrance Examination papers. They will not use the schools’ marking schemes (as these are usually not made available) but will mark them using our own answer schemes, which we hope are closely aligned with the school answers. This is particularly the case for English papers, where some answers can be slightly subjective. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
