Exams - A2C

The Integrated A2C Trial is now progressing well and we expect to have the full basic EDI process in place by late October/mid-November.

To switch to the new Exchange process, centres will be required to disconnect Awarding Organisations from their current A2C App and set up Bromcom’s A2C Exchange. This will allow you to receive Autumn Results directly into Bromcom, even if the original Entries were submitted through the A2C App.

Full instructions will be made available nearer release time. In the meantime, we will continue only with selected schools for the trial.
