External (Report) Examiners' Roles & Responsibilities

Each examiner will be assigned about 5 to 10 reports to mark and compile a SWOT feedback for each report using a model answer and template that will be availed. A second examiner will double check the quality of the marking much as you will be assigned to moderate the quality of marking performed by your peers (other examiners). All markers will get together to debate and agree on the top reports for further evaluation until the final 8 reports are selected and agreed upon by all examiners by consensus.

Examiners are expected to have expertise in the following:

  1. Strategy formulation and execution;
  2. Application of technical financial and business principles and models in solving problems;
  3. Identification / assessment of the main issues in the case;
  4. Distinguishing symptoms from underlying problems;
  5. Assessing the relevance and effectiveness of recommendations;
  6. Assessing the feasibility of implementation plans (planning, organisation, costs, etc.);
  7. Providing insightful verbal and written feedback.

To better discharge their role, External (Report) Examiners are expected to review their assigned case(s) in advance, and familiarise themselves with the competition rules and winning criteria.
