To allow detailed analysis of qualifications on entry and consequent progression
The awarding bodies have given their consent, via the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ), for some of the results data that they forward to UCAS to be shared with HEIs for admission purposes, to also be used in preparing the Student Record from 2007/08. The detail of the agreement is still to be finalised.
This data will be made available to institutions by UCAS (through the *J transaction). The HESA record will work to the existing UCAS coding frame.
There are three cases where for 2006-07 there are two codes for the same qualification. From 2008-09, the UCAS code only will be available for these qualifications.
Institutions are encouraged to provide this information for other full-time undergraduate students, in order to contribute more complete statistical information for the sector. In order for institutions to be able to add information about qualifications that are included in the UCAS Tariff, but for which UCAS do not provide electronic results information, additional codes have been added to the end of the list.
