Complete Control Over All Aspects of External Exams & Customisation Options
External Exams Manager is designed to give you complete control over all aspects of managing and administering external exams – simple, easy to use and highly effective from entry right through to results. Using a wide range of customisable options, this module allows you to give individual candidates all the specific exam details they need.
It lets you specify relevant areas of study and keep clear, up-to-date records of all information, for students and staff. You can also bring in external candidates and separate them from internal ones when you need to, and keep track of entry forms for groups and individual students.
A Simple Step-by-Step Wizard & In-Built Reports
Using data entry forms you can submit forecast grades and coursework marks, reschedule and specify the location of each exam and produce seating plans with a simple step-by-step wizard. You can create results files too, previewing and publishing them without having to be in school, and view and edit exam results in whatever way you need to.
It also produces in-built reports for each stage of the exams process that can be connected to SQL Server Reporting Services, and creates various EDI files, all with added preview functions. Exams External Manager is also fully integrated with the Student Profiles, Parent and Student Portals – perfect for displaying all the key exams information students need.

“We are a new school, so we needed to be thorough when selecting which MIS provider we were going to go ahead with to support us with effectively managing and storing our data; from admissions right through to final exams. All of our research pushed us towards iSAMS, which met each of our criteria.”
Laura (Data Manager) and the staff at the school use the majority of the modules within iSAMS. Laura picks the most useful as being Pupil Manager, HR Manager, Exams Manager, Census & Inspection Manager, Reward & Conduct and Tracking Manager.
