Access to Connect during Results Embargo

Access to Connect during Results Embargo

Early access permissions during the results embargo period are available for key senior staff.

The early access permissions are defined as follows:

· For Key Stage 5, early access permissions will be in operation between 12.01am on the Wednesday prior to A level results day and operate until 8am on the Thursday results day.

· For Key Stage 4, early access permissions will be in operation between 12.01am on the Wednesday prior to KS4 results day and operate until 8am on the Thursday results day.

This will ensure that from 12.01am on the embargo day, key senior staff will be able to see Connect analysis once results are upload.

Note: all other centre staff will be able to view Connect analysis from 8am on results days.

Setting permissions:

Admin users can set up early access permissions for key senior staff through the user management page.

Note: All senior staff who request early access permissions must also be admin users for the centre Connect account.

3. Click ‘EDIT’ for identified user

4 . On the Edit User page, scroll to the Permissions section and toggle the Early Access Privilege button to the right. This is now on.



Note that the administration toggle must be ON before you can grant early access to this user.


5 . Click ‘SAVE’ 

The user will now have to log out of Connect and log back in for the permissions to take effect.
