Producing and exporting your MEGs

Producing and exporting your MEGs

Minimum Expected Grades (MEGs) are the Alps-generated targets that are based on the 75th percentile for the prior attainment band.

To generate MEGs you need to:

  1.  Import your Students, including their Prior Attainment
  2.  Import their Subjects in the Teaching Sets import

The MEGs will then be produced automatically for the subject defined in the Teaching Sets.


The MEGs will be available to download from the MEG reports section on the Connect Homepage under 'Reports and Downloads':

From the MEG Reports section of the sidebar:


Or, from the Export on the Students page.


Whenever you change a subject or prior attainment score, the MEGs will be automatically recalculated. A green notification will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to notify you when the exports are ready.
