Coding notes

The tertiary entrance score to be reported is the integer portion of the value for the common index that has been agreed by MCEETYA (NSW: UAI; SA and NT: TER; Tas: TER; Vic: ENTER; WA: TER.). For Higher Education Providers in Queensland, the "OP's" values are to be converted to an equivalent value for the common index.

The values for the common index will range from 99.95 to 30.00. Those values are to be reported with no fractional portion. The fractional portion may be disregarded or rounded.
Therefore the values to be reported must fall within the range of 030 to 100.

Higher Education only

From 1999, students who should be coded "999" may be coded 030 to 100. These students will be identified using Element 358 (Citizen/resident indicator) and the data will be ignored during edit validations. For the Student Enrolment file, if data other than "001" are reported for non-commencing students, this data will be ignored during edit validations.

Applications and Offers only

The codes 001 and 999 are not applicable to this collection. For this collection, rather than 999, the element is coded bbb (space).

Please refer to the Glossary for further information about terminology used in this document.
