For some courses...that's a LOT to mark :(

I'm scared now. The only reason I'm actually passing maths right is because my tutors are too lenient and give me marks when I'm not supposed too....

tutors and lecturers mark the exams
they usually have a marking guideline that the lecturer sets for the tutors...the lecturer then reviews marks if a set of papers marked by a tutor has marks unusually high or low

Depends on the subject, though.

For example, actuarial is pretty small - the lecturer in charge marks all of every exam.

For first year accounting (back in the days when I did it), I think each lecturer got to mark his or her own part of the course.

For first year maths most of the staff/tutors get involved, because there's just too many to mark, and as Minai said, the guidelines are monitored carefully.

We were told for maths that tutors would mark ours and there'd be an overseer remarking random samples to make sure the tutors were doing their jobs correctly as they were being paid by the paper and not by the hour.
