All entrants where EntryProfile.UCASAPPID exists and this data has been provided by UCAS

For institutions in England this information should also be returned where EntryProfile.QUALENT3 = P41, P42, P46, P50, P51, P62, P63, P64, P68, P80 or P91


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 information is only required for UCAS entrants {full-time undergraduate students} with tariff-bearing qualifications.

Institutions are however encouraged to provide the same information for other {non-UCAS} full-time undergraduate students, in order to contribute more complete statistical information for the sector.

If returning qualification on entry data for a continuing student in order to add to or correct data returned in a previous year, then the complete set of qualifications should be returned not just the updated ones.

The existence of this entity cannot be tested by validation rules. However, submissions will be compared with the data supplied to HESA by UCAS for quality assurance purposes.
