This field should be returned for all learning aims where the grade is meaningful, including all Skills for Life provision. This data should be included in the final return of the year. Where the information is available for earlier returns, it should be included.

Where a learner has been entered for an examination but not achieved a GCE A, AS-level, or GCSE qualification, providers should enter grade U or N as appropriate.

For AS-level qualifications where a learner declines certification the grade achieved by the learner should be recorded. The grade can be identified from the individual module marks issued by the awarding body.

Valid grades may be found in the ILR Appendix Q, when published.
