Providers in England and Northern Ireland may use code 999 as a default for all programmes of study, and it is suggested that this default is used for schemes coded 7 or 8 in Module.CRDTSCM.

Providers in Wales cannot use code 999, unless module is linked only to FE instances in which case 999 is an acceptable default.

Fractional credit points should be rounded to the nearest whole number.
