To use the new levels in Nova T6 you will need to take the following actions:

1. In Nova open the latest 2015/2016 file and go to Data / Refresh Basedata and import the level GCE2Y or GCAS1.

2. In Nova go to Tools / Assign Levels and assign the level to all classes starting 2 year A Level or AS Level courses in 2015/16,

3. When you next send the 2015/2016 timetable to SQL new 2 year A or one year AS courses will be created with the new level.

NB if new levels are assigned to classes in Nova T6 and the changes are sent to Sims AFTER the start of the 2015/2016 year courses will not be automatically created and you will need to do this manually in Course Manager.
