πŸ‘¨β€πŸ« ExamSimulator: How to recall a released exam

In this article we look at how to recall an exam that has been set and marked online via ExamSimulator and already released to students.

Why do we need to do this?

Recalling a released (marked) exam allows a teacher to edit the marking in a student's exam, changing either the marks or the comments. 

What comes before?
You must be a Teacher, HoD or Admin on the site. A group you teach must have been set an 'assessed' or 'practice' exam assignment which has closed and has been marked online via ExamSimulator.
See here how to set an exam.
