Collection of Exam Certificates
Exam board certificates are usually received by the school in early November. Once we have confirmation of when all the certificates will be in school students will be contacted about arrangements for collection of their certificates in the autumn term.
Once awarded, students can receive more than one certificate from different examination boards. Students must check that all the personal information is correct, especially the spelling of names. If there is a problem, the certificate must be returned personally to the Exams Office for return to the examination board. This usually takes two/three weeks. Students will be notified of its return, ready for collection.
Collection by student or an approved student’s representative after the agreed collection date
Please telephone 0161 439 8045 ext 126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange recorded delivery (fee involved) or a convenient collection time. Please do not just turn up at school..
Safe Keeping and Replacement
Once awarded, the certificates must be kept in a safe place as they are difficult and expensive to replace. In some cases certificates will only be replaced if proof of loss is provided and Exam Boards will issue a ‘Statement of Results’, typically charging approximately £45 per statement.
The certificates will probably be required as proof by colleges and/or employers when applying for courses or employment.
