The same Student.HUSID can occur twice when an individual has been awarded two qualifications which fall into different survey periods. The Student.APRJAN data item is used to indicate which survey a response applies to. An individual making two responses should be included in the dataset twice, allowing their responses to be linked to the relevant qualifications rewarded. The combination of Student.HUSID and Student.APRJAN must be unique.
