This term is only applicable to Tertiary Admission Centres. Refer coding notes for applicable elements for instructions about data submission for preliminary submissions.
Due to the nature of the Applications and Offers Data Collection some of the data required may not be known or may be considered too provisional in nature by the submitting entity. Accordingly in the interests of being able to expedite analysis at the earliest time the first collection is to be a preliminary collection. The preliminary collection differs from the detailed collections by allowing some data not to be included. The Detailed collection on the other hand must contain the known data.
This glossary item applies to the collection types:
