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.

Providers are encouraged to provide this information for other full-time undergraduate students, in order to contribute more complete statistical information for the sector; though this field is optional outside of the coverage of the UCAS Data for HESA (*J) transaction.
