Q about DAX EARLIEST in a measure

I've made the following measure: 

 

CALCULATE(SELECTEDVALUE('Student Progression'[ACT_START]),FILTER('Student Progression','Student Progression'[UNIT] = "P1-L1-O"))

 

 

It seems to work, and returns a the ACT_START (a date) for the P1-L1-O event occurs.  Problem is, this event could happen multiple times for the same person.  How would I get the FIRST or EARLIEST date instead?

@elietech change your measure like this:

 

CALCULATE(MIN('Student Progression'[ACT_START]),FILTER('Student Progression','Student Progression'[UNIT] = "P1-L1-O"))
