NoteAs some people would have obtained qualifications reported in Wave Five after 1.9.95, some double counting is possible. Care should be taken when combining qualifications across Waves. See Usage Notes in Vol. A. The highest current educational and academic qualifications are given in derived variables FQFEDHI and FQFACHI. Vocational qualifications are flagged in FQFVOC. National (Scottish) Vocational Qualifications - NVQ's and SVQ's began being awarded between Waves 4 and 5.
