The Exams Team will download the student data for the LSA timetable in early July.  It is essential that all marks for centrally managed exams have been input and processed; and that Exam Board decisions are fully processed in Portico by the 28 June deadline, to ensure that we are picking up the correct records for inclusion in the assessment timetable.
