    BTEC Exams result import issues

    Hi,

    I've been passed this problem with SIMS/Exams as it's had our exams officer stumped for a few weeks.

    When importing the Edexcel BTEC results file, it imports results for some qualifications, but not for others. The error displayed in the result log is
    "Aspect Type Result for Element <ExamCode> not found"

    When checking the qualification properties in the basedata, the Result gradeset is unpopulated for qualifications that are failing, and populated for qualifications that are not failing. See picture exams issue.jpg.

    Refreshing the basedata does not populate this field.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    I've requested to be resent the basedata from Edexcel for these qualifications but they do not seem overly willing to do this as it will require them to recreate the result file.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    We had the same issue, Capita has a fix for it but it didn't work for us, the SIMS manager ended up having to enter the results manually through editpi

    Uhoh, exams officer isn't going to like that.

    Do you have any details about the patch. Our LEA support desk keep pointing me towards an basedata file issue.

    This seems to be a known issue - I had it with some of our BTEC courses but not all. I was advised by our LA support that if the patch didn't work (it didn't) the workaround was to use Edit PI.

    Hopefully Linfit can shed some light on the patch, I can't seem to find the emails discussing it now and the SIMS manager is busy at the moment.

    Have a look at the thread "BTEC Results not imported (40399)" on Supportnet. Patch number is 18525 according to this - was that the big "solves lot of problems" patch that was brought out?

    Have you upgraded to the Summer 2 release?
