YY is replaced by two digits indicating the year in which the course was/will be "offered" for the first time or the year in which the course was/will be "offered" for the last time (e.g. "90" would indicate 1990).

"Offered" means that a new cohort of students was/will be admitted to the course for the year in question.

Courses introduced prior to 1989 are to be assigned a code of "188".
