Cambridge Assessment is taking steps to tighten its processes in the delivery and transportation of examination scripts.
Its director of assessment Juliet Wilson said that they are reviewing procedures for examiners.
This could include reviewing where examiners are allowed to mark scripts.
Currently, most exam scripts are marked at home by examiners, who are not employees of Cambridge Assessment.
The exams board is also moving towards more on-screen or electronic marking.
Nearly 65 per cent of scripts across the GCE N, O and A levels were marked on-screen last year.
This year, almost all papers will be marked online.
