      • Note: Extensions maybe used in this import depending on the fields. If the fields relate to a specific marking column then the fields that go with that marking column are grouped together. For example , the 00 extension would only be grading information for Q1. The 01 extensions has grading information that applies to Q2. In other words, the extensions represents the grading information for one specific marking column.
