Rule 40529 - Authority Cannot be Writing Centre

Rule Type Rejection

Validated Data

This rule is used to validate the following data in a Exam Sitting record:

To perform this validation, the following information is used:


Diploma Examination writing centres are schools and Alberta Education. An authority itself cannot be a writing centre.

Effective Period

  • This validation rule is in effect for all school years.

Additional Notes

There is a future requirement to allow an Authority to host an Examination. However, currently the business will only allow a School or Alberta Education to be classified as a Writing Centre for an exam. Rather than removing the functionality that allows an Authority to host an exam, this rule will ensure the current business rule is protected.


When this validation rule is triggered, the following message is returned:

Invalid Writing Centre.

The Writing Centre for an Exam Sitting must be a School or Alberta Education.
