I have queried today with the CSSE that I would like to see my sons answers sheets.
I have been quoted the Data protection Act and that I am not entitled to see them, and that they will not be providing them. They also told me that whilst I have a right to ask for the answers to be checked and given feedback, there will be no remarking. Incidentally, i have to write to the school where the exam was sat.
I was under the impression that the Data Protection Act was there to protect the individual from large organisations passing on private details about them to third parties and to allow them (the individual) to view any information held about them or their dependents. I am however no legal expert!
With regards to applying to the school where the exam was sat, who marks the papers in the first place? What do they mean that the answers will be checked but not remarked? Isn't this the same thing?
Sorry if I am rambling. What do other people think?
