Using the correct EDI file format
The current version of the JCQ EDI Formats is Version 14. Before you import basedata for 2012/13, please ensure that you install the latest version of the management information system you use to administer examinations.
Download each set of files, extract all of the constituent files to a suitable directory and then use the import or update feature in your examinations software to add the new basedata.
Which file should I choose?
Choose the .exe self-extracting zip file if you use Windows 95 or later. Double-clicking on the downloaded file will automatically extract the relevant files.
Choose the .zip file if you use Windows 3.1 and then use a zip program such as WinZip or PKZip to extract the files.
Please note: These executable and self-extracting .zip files may contain viruses that could harm your computer. OCR has checked for viruses using commercial virus-checking software but by downloading and opening these files you agree that OCR shall not be liable for any damage or loss caused in the event that the file contains a virus or other harmful component.
OCR cannot answer any questions on the use of SIMS or any other exams software packages.
