Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Basedata
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a service for centres that use a Management Information System (MIS). It uses basedata to transfer data between awarding bodies and centres. Here, you can download basedata and find out how to use EDI to make entries and registrations.
How to use EDI
Please submit entries using EDI or Edexcel Online. Edexcel Online is available for use from the basedata issue dates.
About our basedata
The basedata complies with the JCQ agreed format version 14. It contains syllabus, option, component, timetable and fee information and is designed to be imported into your Management Information System (MIS). If your MIS does not support version 14, please contact your MIS supplier for an upgrade.
If you have any queries, feedback or require earlier JCQ version basedata, please contact us or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will only issue results in the current JCQ agreed format. We welcome any feedback on our basedata.
Important note: Registrations required for Applied A level
You must ensure that candidates are registered before any entries are made for them. If we receive entries for unregistered candidates we will automatically register them on the relevant three-unit qualification. This may result in higher entry fees.
