Discount (classification) codes
Discount – or classification – codes are generated by the Department for Education (DfE). Some qualifications have two discount codes, one for Key Stage 4 and one for Key Stage 5 (post-16).
We therefore include:
- Key Stage 4 codes for all Level 1, 2 and 1/2 awards (eg, GCSEs), where the DfE have published a KS4 code.
- Key Stage 5 (post-16) codes for all Level 3 awards (eg, AS and A-level), and for any other award that hasn’t been assigned a Key Stage 4 code.
The codes included in our basedata are taken from the following DfE websites:
