Exam certificates

Examination certificates are valuable documents as they are the official legal record and should be looked after very carefully.  We cannot provide a replacement. The Awarding Bodies have information on their websites about obtaining a certifying statement of results should you lose your certificate. They will charge a fee.

A student who did not collect their certificate can contact the office via email to arrange posting or make a collection appointment.
