Looking at the picture in the first post, is that someone in the bottom left clutching a (computer) tablet?

Does anyone know when the August revision of the July grading list will be published.
Thanks.
I asked this question elsewhere and Nick Grey suggested that the August Revision would most likely be published in September.

The various LMSs that I manage need to on stream for the new season and we only have the July version.
