Am I entitled to see my marked examination script under the Data Protection Act?

NEBOSH policy is consistent with the Data Protection Act 1998, under which awarding bodies are not legally obliged to provide access to examination scripts.   

Schedule 7 Paragraph 9 of the Data Protection Act states that “personal data consisting of information recorded by students during an academic, professional or other examination are exempt”. 

‘Examination’ is defined under the Act as including “any process for determining the knowledge, intelligence, skill or ability of a candidate by reference to his performance in any test, work or other activity”.
