Coding notes

The code to be assigned to a specialisation is to be selected from those which are applicable to the coding courses to fields of study. The specialisation code may be different to the code assigned to indicate the field of study for a course, because the allocation of a specialisation code will take into account the majors undertaken by a student.

Reference will need to be made to the student's program of studies. If a student's program of studies cannot be classified to a single specialisation, up to three records may be included in the appropriate file, one for each specialisation.
