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 Exam Boards have information on their websites about obtaining a certifying statement of results should you lose your certificate. They will charge a fee.  Information about 2016 certificates will be on this page in late October.

A student who did not collect their 2015 certificate can arrange to collect or pay for delivery when the 2016 collection information is published.
