Who to contact
Contact an exam board to get a replacement exam certificate or certified statement of results.
You cannot get a replacement certificate for an O level, CSE, GCSE or A level - your exam board will send you a ‘certified statement of results’ instead. You can use this in place of your exam certificate, for example for a university application.
Boards may give you a replacement certificate for other qualifications they offer.
You may need to prove your identity and pay a fee.
Find out which exam board you should contact if your old exam board no longer exists.
Check with your school or college if you’re not sure which exam board holds your results.
The 5 boards in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are:
- Council for Curriculum and Examinations Assessment (CCEA)
- Pearson Edexcel
- Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Exams (OCR)
- Welsh Joint Examinations Committee (WJEC)
Contact the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) for replacement certificates for Scottish qualifications.
