i'm not sure, but i think it's said that papers from pakistan are checked in pakistan, then the top papers are sent to cie for further cheking before the distinctions etc are announced...
personally i think they're checked in a similar way to the SAT essays... i.e. the papers are scanned and then electronically distributed like worldwide, wherever the examiners are. thus the paper format and request to use dark blue or black pens...

i think they are all cheked at cambridge thats why it takes 2 months to get ur results.
but SATS are marked locally thats why you get your results in a week

Once i was writing with a light pen, invigilator came and then told me to use dark pen next time as the papers are sent to UK examination board !!

Yeah I mean they can not be scanned as in the mark scheme I've read that it's written for the examiners to 'not to put more than one question mark after writing comments' or 'tick this line' or 'mark that' or 'underline' etc. So they are hand-checked.
