The ct and SA papers are marked by students own teachers right. It is unlike PSLE which has a central marking by different teachers. If so, how do they ensure fairness, especially when the P6 SA result is going to be used for DSA?

The teachers have their marking rubrics. And GEP HQ will moderate if necessary. So don't worry about it.

moderation is one thing but here I am referring to the script marked by only one teacher recently. Thot they used to have the papers marked by two teachers (saw it when ds was in P4) to counter check? What if sch A does very well and sch B does badly, wonder if they will review the marking details to investigate why?

All the marks are sent to GEP HQ and if one school is scoring very well while another is scoring very badly they will definitely investigate.
