Symptoms

After applying bundles 37 and 38, the UCAS Decisions page Offer Strings are not being generated correctly.

A comma is added to the offer string incorrectly, so shows as ,.TO,260,.TE, and this also showing in the UCAS Transaction page; however, it is not sent to UCAS this way and is confusing. Also, when adding decisions where you want to ask for a range of grades in a range of subjects, the offer string generated is incorrect as the comma in between the subjects are missing from the offer string. This fails when sent to UCAS stating incorrect Subject Code and here is no way of adding the comma manually by users

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Apply bundles 37 and 38.
2. Navigate to the UCAS Decision Processing page and enter a normal decision or decisions where you want to ask for a range of grades in a range of subjects.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot manually add the comma, so this is a potential show stopper for these types of decisions that are used regularly for some courses.
