  44. SIMS Exams FAQs Q Last summer there were a few issues with subject codes not recognising against each other for discounting purposes. A We are updating the PI calculations in line with new DfE rules and as part of that work these issues will be resolved Q With the changes to KS4 discount codes this year, will the system be able to discount previous codes against new codes? A Yes Q With the news that the first attempt of GCSE English and Maths will only count, will the system also be calculating this? A Yes, this now covers all Ebacc subject areas see; https://www.gov.uk/government/news/changes-to-early-entry-at-gcse

  45. SIMS Exams FAQs Q Can you tell me if these performance calculations and discounting are part of the Performance Measures XML file or is it coded elsewhere in the system? A A combination of the above. Q Is there a new Performance Measures XML file in the pipeline and if so will it be included in the SIMS Spring 2014 release? A Yes – to coincide with summer release as additional fields will be included in the import to support some of the new DfE rules.

  46. SIMS Exams FAQs Q My understanding is that the “first entry only counts” is from September 2013, so June 2013 results can be improved upon for both student and school in Nov 2013 OR June 2014? A Correct Q For students who sat the Nov 2013 exam, the results stand for the school but the student could hopefully improve their result in June 2014? A Correct

  47. SIMS Exams FAQs Q Will SIMS be able to calculate school performance (first entry only counts) for the headline Performance Tables PI Cohort Summary data? A SIMS will calculate best result where the Exam has been sat prior to Sept 2013 and first result where sat after 2013 the rules above Q For Expected Progress measures, does the “first entry only counts” rule apply? A Expected Measures will take whichever result has been included in PI based on the rules above
