MIS Doesn't Support Multiple Centres? Try Exam File Split
I've just finished the first version of the Exam File Split program.
The program was born out of necessity: SIMS does not support multiple exam centre numbers, and Capita refuse to provide support. At the same time, exam boards do not want split site schools to use a single centre number, as this means transferring exam papers between sites: if a paper gets mis-laid/lost/stolen, that exam has to be canceled for the entire country. Understandable really!
So I have created a simple program which will take the exam entry or amendments file that your MIS produces and split it for you based on a set of configuration files you provide it.
There are instructions in the readme as well as example configuration files, but if you need any help setting it up let me know.
Oh, and a disclaimer:
Currently there is only myself using it and I'm waiting to hear back from one other person how they get on with it, so your feedback is welcome.
Use this software at your own risk, I accept no responsibility for any missed entries, incorrect file formats or exploding PC's that may occur from your use of this software! That being said, if you need any help feel free to contact me.
If anybody would like to look at the source code (it's nothing special but some people prefer to know exactly what a piece of software is doing) then let me know and I'll make it available.
