This UCAS Personal Identifier together with the UCAS Application Code (UCASAPPID) forms the UCAS Application identifier.
The UCAS Personal Identifier is sometimes presented using hyphens between characters 3 and 4 and between characters 6 and 7. These hyphens are not to be included in this field.
Leading zeros must be added where required to make up the field character length. For example a previous value of 123456 will need to be recorded as 0000123456.
