A standard moderation takes place at your venue on your preferred date and time, making it a very flexible moderation option.


What happens on the day of the moderation? 

The moderator will look through a sample of the portfolios, meet with 25% of the young people from each centre (up to a max. 10, or 15 for groups of 80+), and then speak with and deliver feedback to the adviser(s). 


How much does it cost? 

Centres entering for a standard moderation must meet or exceed the minimum moderation fee. This means that the total fees of the candidates you are entering for moderation must reach or exceed this minimum. 

If you do not meet the minimum fee but wish to book a standard moderation, you will be charged a top-up fee so that your moderation costs meet the minimum moderation fee

If your moderation costs do not meet the minimum fee, you may wish to look at the other moderation options, as there may be a more cost-effective option for your centre. 


How do I book? 

A standard moderation can be requested at any time of year and can be booked via the adviser portal. At a minimum, we require 8 weeks advance notice for this type of moderation. The more notice you give, the more likely it is that we will be able to meet your requirements.
