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.
This data will be made available to institutions by UCAS (through the *J transaction). The HESA record will work to existing UCAS coding frames.
Institutions are encouraged to provide this information for other full-time undergraduate students, in order to contribute more complete statistical information for the sector
QUALSBJ contains the list of codes that have been valid since 2006. Qualifications obtained before this date should be mapped to this list where possible; if this is not possible then code U01 should be used.
There is additional guidance on qualifications on entry available, which includes information regarding limitations to use of qualification subject codes.
