The Department of Education has created a new grading system for a number of subjects from 1st to 3rd year. In order to use this new grading system, you will need to set up an exam and a template for the exam.

First, go to Settings > Exams > Actions > New Exam.

Then select the 'Add Field' button. 

Under 'Type' choose 'Select'.

Under 'Value' type out the list of values that the teachers will choose from when entering results and make sure to separate them by a comma, with no spaces. For example: Exceptional,Above expectations,In line with expectations,Yet to meet expectations 

Click 'Save'.

Now that your exam is set up, you will need to create a template to use with this exam. 

Go to Settings > Exam Print Templates.

Here you can either upload a new template or edit an existing one. Your template will include a 'New Grade' column containing the variable: ${Result.ExtraField1} to correspond with the extra field you created in your exam. It will look something like the image below.

In cases where you would prefer not to have an extra grade field in your template, you can remove the main 'Grade' column from your template and leave the 'Mark' and 'New Grade' columns only.

Then in your exam (Settings > Exams > Edit Exam > Add Field) you can enter your values as follows: Partially achieved,Achieved,Merit,Higher merit,Distinction,A,B,C,D,E,F,NG 

This way, when teachers are entering in results, they can leave the 'Grade' option blank, and select the grade from the 'New Grade' drop down list.
