Read more about a day in the life of a Cambridge ESOL Speaking Examiner. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us and thanks for your great support, Davine Sutherland!
The alarm rings – it’s 6.30am, WAY before my usual waking time (I’m a night owl), but duty calls! As one of the few Cologne examiners who has a car – I live on the outskirts, not the centre, where a car is a handicap – I always get the distant venues, and have to arrange to pick up my fellow-examiner en route. Our centre is involved in the NRW Cambridge Schulprojekt, so many of our exam venues are schools dotted all over the area.
