DRS Agrees a New Contract with AQA Education

DRS announced that it has agreed a new contract with AQA Education, relating to the continued supply by DRS of its e-Marker (Registered) examination services. AQA and DRS have been working together since 2005. The contract replaces the current agreement and extends the company's relationship with AQA to 23 March 2018. Over the 3 year term of the contract DRS expects to remain the primary provider delivering the majority of the electronic marking volume to AQA, with the principal focus continuing to be on the provision of Item Level Marking services.

DRS Data and Research Services plc Reports Group Interim Management Statement Results for the Period from January 1, 2014 to November 2014

DRS Data and Research Services plc reported group interim management statement results for the period from January 1, 2014 to November 2014. For the ten months, the company reported total revenues of £12,754,000 compared to total revenues of £14,923,000 for the same period a year ago. The reasons for the decline in Education revenue are a combination of structural changes to academic qualifications in the UK and challenging conditions in the overseas market for the Group's traditional scanner and print sales including Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ).
