We registered and downloaded & installed the software with no technical issues at all.
All the Boards we use are connecting ok - once we had pursuaded AQA that their Password did not match their file - and they released another version to us!
We will be sending in a small Summer entry file shortly, as a tester.

We have just successfully sent a June entry file to one of the exam boards!
We have just received our cleverly worded invitation to partake in a2c (with apologies to Spike Milligan).
Must say I was hoping it would be after the summer exam entries had been submitted. I may just go ahead and submit our GCSE ones on Monday the old way. That then gives me another month to get everything ready before I need to submit the GCE ones.
There is no compulsion to use it even if you do install it now. You can always revert to your normal carrier. It's an ideal time to trial it while you have a backup procedure, just in case you have a problem.
And, in our case, the setup only took a few minutes!
To quote an email from A2C enquiries, answering a query from our Exams Officer...
I'm playing with the installation and such this morning... fingers crossed ehOriginally Posted by a2c
Further to my last post.
Yesterday, we received the notification of successful transfer of the Entry File.
An Amendment file has now been prepared and also submitted.
(Maybe I should add that we have been using the AVCO Exam Centre software for many years for transferring EDI files to EBs!)
We have been on it since Christmas time and the A2C migration app is a doddle, unlike a number of you having to tweak your Smoothie mine just worked out of the box and its been great for us and the A2C, after the Edexcel mess up of not having us approved when we were, its been great and no issues from the Exam Officer or me.
We enquired earlier in the academic year but, apparantly, they were not ready to 'invite' us then!
And I find that a strange phenomenum - we often get invites to trial things early!
(Wow - another Mod that I agree with! I must be mellowing in my old age!)
.... and now another (Stuart) is following me on Twitter!
Am I being spied on ................ ????
