Frequently Asked Questions
- Is Blutick free for all LGfL schools?
4. Does Blutick mark students work accurately?
On average, the mark given by the Blutick Exams feature is within 10% of the true mark. We recommend that teachers check through their students’ exams and award/remove marks if they feel the automatic marking hasn’t got it quite right.

A truly secure remote exam would involve a great deal of time and expense. However, using video conference software alongside a Blutick Exam may help students to feel something of the nature of a formal examination. Check out the Blutick guide to delivering an exam using video conference software here.
7. What age students can Blutick be used for?
Blutick can be used with both Keystage3 and Key Stage 4 Students.
8. How can I access the results of the secure mock via Blutick?
The Exam Summary page provides teachers with information on each of their students, including total time spent on the exam, number of questions completed, number of attempts at the exam, and the overall mark and grade achieved by each student.
Additional analysis can be provided via the SchoolVue analytics platform.
