Entering Exam results in Arbor

Preparation

Before the Summer Results Day check the A2C Migration Application is working to ensure EDI result files can be downloaded.

EDI result files sent by awarding organisations must be downloaded via the A2C Migration Application, and then imported into Arbor.

Results can also be manually added for non-EDI qualifications.

As A2C has no direct link to Arbor’s Exams Module, we won't be able to advise on the downloading of results files via A2C. Please see their website here for their guidance.

Can I import results from an EDI file if I did not make the entries in Arbor?

Yes! You will see a note on the Imported Results window but you do not need to take any further action

I’m getting an error of 'Results file not Imported. The file must be an EDI result file in format RXXXXXXX.X01’

Please check the file name - if you’ve downloaded it more than once you may have a (1) appended to the file name. Rename the file and try again.

Where is my results file?

If you’ve already downloaded your results from the A2C website you’ll need to locate the file - it is usually in a folder called 'Downloads' but your IT department may have changed your download destination folder, please contact them for help. If you’ve not yet downloaded your file please go to the A2C website and log in to get it.

Why do I need to set an Embargo date?

This should follow your school policy for viewing exam results before results day. Adding an embargo date will prevent people from viewing the results before they are officially released - you can see more details on this here.
