To download your results, open A2C on your computer and, from the inbox, select the ‘Send/Receive files’ button. From here you can import this to your MIS.
If you haven’t received your files as expected, check your A2C log and see if the file has been recorded there. If yes, please close, log in again and select ‘send/receive’ for the file to appear.
Alternatively, please check another user at the centre has not already downloaded the results on another PC.
Our EDI results files are in the latest JCQ format (currently version 14).
This format is used by all the JCQ awarding bodies (see the JCQ formats booklet).
A2C access keys are typically valid for 10 years, so you may receive a warning to say yours has expired. However, they will continue to work even if you're seeing a warning message.
If you want to request a new access key, you can do this in Interchange from Centre Information > A2C Data Exchange and then follow the on-screen instructions.
You can read more about using A2C on the JCQ website.
For general qualifications and Cambridge Nationals, once results are issued, we publish updated EDI and XML files on a weekly basis via Interchange. These will be available each Monday until the end of the post-results period.
To access these files, log in to Interchange, hover over ‘Results’ in the left-hand menu and then click on ‘XML/EDI results’.
If you want to use these files, be aware, they’ll overwrite any manual changes you’ve made to your system.
