Busy marking exams

I’m not a teacher. But I am marking exams this month. A whole lot of professional exams with lots of maths in them. Fortunately I quite like that sort of thing (in moderation) – although I’m not so keen on the lost writing time.

I also rather like the romantic tale of how Tolkien scribbled the first line of The Hobbit onto the back of an exam paper during (school) exam marking season. I think I’d get into trouble if I did that…  I don’t even get to make lovely red crosses all over the paper – they have to be left clean so that I won’t influence any future markers. And these papers will be second and maybe even third marked.

Right I better get on with it.
