Reporting late awards
There may be cases where a student completes study in the reporting year but their results will not be known until the next reporting cycle. In these cases the Instance record should be reported as ended in the year in which the taught or structured part of the course is completed and Instance.RSNEND would be returned with code 98 'Completion of course - result unknown'. In the next reporting cycle the provider would resend the last reported InstancePeriod record with the qualification information updated.
For example, if a student completed their first degree in July 2015 but the award was not known until late November 2015 the provider would need to report the instance period in 2015/16 with qualification information included:
