Coding notes

HEPs / TACs - data is discretionary in all submissions except for the University of Tasmania which requires this data in all submissions.

For TACs refer to TAC Data Elements Map for more information.

Current year means the year in which the most recent Australian State and Territory school-leaver cohort completed Year 12 i.e. the year immediately prior to the reference year for the detailed collections.

For the preliminary collection (TACs only), this element should reflect the Year 12 qualification being attempted.

Only one qualification is to be reported in cases where an application is made by an individual with more than one current Australian Year 12 qualification.

The following qualifications are coded as ‘09’: Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning, Accelerated Christian Education and Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf Education.

QCE (‘03’) may also be used for the Queensland Senior Certificate by internal examination but the Queensland Senior Certificate by external examination is excluded.

International Baccalaureate qualifications are coded ‘08’ for all students who are confirmed by the Australian Office of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (regardless of whether the qualification was achieved at an onshore Australian school).

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