Lost Results/Certificates

If you have lost your results within the last five years we can send you a copy of those results. We cannot help you with certificates; these are only produced by the exam boards and you will need to approach them directly. If your results span a period of five years or more, you must contact the exam boards directly.

If you can no longer remember which exam board your subjects were with, you should check whether a friend from school has their results, and ask them who their subjects were with as we do not hold that information. Follow this guideline here: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate/if-your-old-exam-board-no-longer-exists

Once you know which boards to contact then please follow the links below:


Please remember this is not a free service and each exam board will charge you for obtaining this information.
