Reason required This attribute aids interpretation of Module.CRDTPTS and Module.LEVLPTS. Whilst it is not expected that many HEPs will operate numerous different credit scheme this can happen in certain cases. In addition many Modules are likely to sit out with the credit schemes operated by the HEP. It is therefore appropriate to collect the Credit Scheme at a modular level.
