Certificates of Results for Examinations:
Certificates will arrive with us by December following your exams in the summer. External candidates and school leavers can collect certificates from the first week of January term.
Please note: If you require anyone to collect a certificate on your behalf you will need to provide us with written permission (email will suffice) and they will need to bring ID.
It is not our exams office policy to post certificates because of their value and the cost of replacing them. Regulations state that certificates should be stored for a minimum of 12 months from the date of issue.
