Preparing the CSV/Excel file
You will usually upload your students into InCAS+ using a spreadsheet. This is where you will input their details such as first name, surname, date of birth, etc.
We recommend you use an Excel spreadsheet and save it as a CSV (Comma delimited) file.
All headers with a red asterisk are mandatory information fields on your CSV spreadsheet.
Importing pupil details into InCAS+
Choose the 'Import' option in the InCAS+ Assessment Centre once you have saved your spreadsheet as a CSV file and added your student data.
Click 'Choose File' and browse to where you have saved your completed spreadsheet.
Your CSV/Excel file should contain column headers. Please select 'Yes' to 'Does the file contain column headers?' and then click 'Upload'.
On the next page you will be asked to map the column header names from your CSV file to the ones in
the drop-down menu options. You can choose ‘Ignore’ from the drop-down menu if you want
to exclude any of the columns from your CSV spreadsheet at this stage. Click ‘Next’ at the bottom of the page to confirm the details
On the next screen, you will be given a further opportunity to edit/delete student details. Click
‘Next’ when you are happy to continue and upload these student details to the system.
A green banner notification will display at the top of the screen to let you know you have
successfully uploaded your student details. You can also confirm this by checking the data in
the ‘Manage Pupil Details’ tab.
