Coding notes

YY is replaced by two digits indicating the last year in which the student completed the final year of secondary education at school (e.g. "81" would indicate 1981). If no information is available for year, code as "2AA" or "3AA".

If data are reported for students other than non‑overseas students, DETYAPAC will identify such students using Element 358 (Citizen/resident indicator) and will ignore the data during edit validations and the data for them will be re‑coded as "000" when data are loaded to DETYA's database.
