Setting up Non-EDI qualifications

To set up your exams, you'll need to add the awards and units your school is offering. The process is slightly different than for EDI exams, because Non-EDI exams don't use EDI files for basedata and entries.

This article covers Non-EDI Exams, so please see our other guidance for other exam types here: Add exam awards and units for different qualification types


You'll need the Qualifications: Administer All Students permission to set up exams. If you don't have permissions, ask your administration team to give you permission using these instructions


Step 1 - Add the award or unit

Go to Students > Examinations > Qualifications > Qualification Offering > Non-EDI. Click the +Add new button to add a new Qualification.



In the slide over, start typing a code to search for the award or unit.

Can't find the right one? Follow these instructions: I can't add the right qualification or unit for exams



Step 2 - Subscribe to the learning units to add assessables

You can subscribe to the learning units on the next page by ticking the boxes.

Top Tip: Awards or units will be greyed out when there are students provisionally entered. To unsubscribe from this award or unit, withdraw all the students from it.



When you click Save Changes, you can then add an assessable for each learning unit. Once you have chosen your assessables, click Create.



Top Tip: If you don't want to create an assessable for a learning unit right now, skip by removing the assessable code.



(Optional) Add more assessables and instances

You can view all Qualifications from Students > Examinations >  Qualifications > Non-EDI. 

You can add further assessables by selecting the award, selecting the unit, and clicking the green Create an Assessable button.



A new section will appear at the bottom of the unit page displaying Assessable Instances.

Click +Add to add an instance.



In the slide over, add the start date, start time and end time.



You can click into the instance to see more information or delete it.



What's next?

Once you have added the exams you'll be offering to your Qualification Offering, the next step is to make sure you have your candidates set up, ready to make entries: Setting up your exam candidates ready for entries
