If files are not correctly named they will be rejected by the Schools Portal.

Simply changing a file extension, e.g. from .mov to .mp4 or from .odt to .docx, will most likely cause the file to become corrupt and unreadable by the State Examinations Commission. The file must be saved in the correct format initially.

It is important when naming files that the file extension is not repeated. This can occur when file extensions are turned off and therefore not shown in Windows Explorer. In order to be certain that file extensions are displayed when you are naming your files make sure the File name extensions tickbox under the View menu is ticked. Note that the image below is from Windows 10. This procedure may be slightly different if you are using a different version of Windows.

If your school are using Mac OS rather than Windows this option can be found in theFinder - > Preferences -> Advanced menu as shown below

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
