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 HEPs for admission purposes, to also be used in preparing the Student Record from 2007/08.
This data will be made available to providers by UCAS (through the *J transaction). The HESA record will work to the existing UCAS coding frame.
Grades may be valid with a number of qualifications, so the list below is a list of all grades valid in this field. The meaning of each grade can vary depending on which qualification it is associated with.
Further explanation of which grades belong to which qualification is available from the UCAS website.
Additional information on qualifications may be found in the Further guidance on reporting qualifications on entry document.
Providers are encouraged to provide this information for other full-time undergraduate students, in order to contribute more complete statistical information for the sector.
