How did you get into marking examinations?

I was very fortunate initially when I started teaching; my head of department recommended, after the first year, that I apply to do exam marking because she absolutely knew the benefits that it could bring, not just to myself, but to the whole department that I could then feed back to them.

I started off doing GCSE and I have then since moved on to A-level and have now marked for both AS and A2.
