How to read this report
Unique student record
The concept of Major course is utilised in these reports where a student is enrolled in more than one course. The Major course is identified in order to select a unique set of characteristics for each student and is defined as the course with the greatest Equivalent Full‑Time Student Load (EFTSL).
If there is more than one course with the same EFTSL, the selected course is based on alpha/numeric sorting (ascending) of the Course code (E307).
