Exam Results Day Guidance

This page contains guidance for the import of results files in August

For JCQ regulations on the publication of examination results see here.

For Pearson guidance on receiving BTEC Results files by EDI ( Electronic Data Interchange) see here.

For schools who have A2C already linked to SIMS and want to link to Bromcom as well please note advise is this is not recommended as this could potentially cause problems with files submissions and receipt. 

Known Issues

Not in grade range error when importing results

When importing component result files schools are getting the message Not in grade range. If a student has a mark greater than four characters they are not being imported. For example, 89.1 will import but 100.1 will not. We are currently working to resolve this.

As a workaround please import the EDI file which will bring in the missing results/grades for any of these students.

Until this is resolved component analysis will not be available for these students.

WJEC file not importing

When you go to import the WJEC results file the pop up screen is blank. This is because schools have imported Welsh base data instead of the English base data. You have two options.

Option 1: You can download the English base data and import this. You can either choose the specific Exam Options needed, or just all of them. Go to Modules > Exams > Manage Base Data > Actions > Import/Update Data. Once done you can then import your results again.

Option 2: Please contact the support team and will amend the series name in the database.

Results not showing correctly for some students

Where a student’s results have been imported and the Mark contains more than four digits, such as 109.4. It has imported the .4 from the Mark in as a secondary Result. See the example below which is from Results by Student report.

We are releasing an update on the evening of 24/08/2022 to correct this. However, you may need to reimport your results again. You can check if you have been affected by running the Results by Student report. Reports > Exams > Results by Student.
