Qualification proportion (QUALPROPORTION)
|Part of||Qualification subject (QualificationSubject)|
|Description||This field indicates the proportion of time allocated for each subject studied on a Qualification|
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
|Coverage||All QualificationSubject entities|
This field indicates the proportion applicable to the subject recorded in the associated QualificationSubject.QUALSUBJECT and allows providers to assign their own broad percentages for Qualifications with multiple subjects.
It is not expected that these percentages will be derived from a detailed analysis of the contributions of subjects to individual students' programmes of study but will instead be based on a broad assessment of the relative contributions of each subject.
It is expected that providers will apply the same percentages to all Qualifications with similar proportional splits. The standard percentages below are recommended for balanced two subjects, major minor subjects and balanced triple subjects. Where broad assessment of the subject contributions differs from these percentages, alternative values can be returned.
A value between 5 and 100 is returned in this field and the sum of all values returned must add up to 100 for a given Qualification.
Proportions are to be recorded as a positive, whole integer.
|Quality Rules||Quality rules to follow|
|Reason required||To record the contribution of subjects for qualifications, to allow for analysis of students by subject area.|
