Results slips and certificates
For exams officers: what students receive and when.
On student results day, students receive a printed results slip from you (also known as a candidate statement of provisional results).
Results slips on e-AQA show results from us. If you want results slips showing all exam boards, you might be able to print them from your MIS (Management Information System).
The results slip shows provisional results. This is so that there's time for enquiries about results (eg reviews), late award claims and any results that are still pending.

- how grades are shown on your results slip
New AS results slips
Results slips for our new linear AS specifications (for first teaching from 2015) will show only an overall subject grade – because grades are awarded at the subject level. Individual component results will still be available on e-AQA and Enhanced Results Analysis (ERA).
If you or your A-level students need to know whether they've secured their place at university, see UCAS's results pages. After results day, we update UCAS daily with results files and any changes to grades.
For students applying overseas, we can confirm results from the current series to overseas universities for free: email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this as early as you can. We can't translate our confirmation, or give results early.
We send certificates to schools about eight weeks after results day. They show the final, confirmed results.
Check that you have all the certificates you expected. Give them to students without delay (using secure post if sending by mail), and keep a record of what you've issued. Any unclaimed certificates must be stored securely for at least 12 months, then destroyed confidentially or sent back to us.
When you'll receive certificates by
Fill in our Request for early dispatch of certificates form if you need certificates earlier. For example, for a prizegiving event.
If a certificate is missing, check that you've entered an award code for the student – more details on our entries pages.
If that doesn't seem to be the reason for the missing certificate, email email@example.com.
Correct a certificate
If personal information is incorrect, or a student's grade has changed since the certificate was printed, you can get a corrected version. It's free if you send it back by the date below, otherwise there's a fee of £43 per certificate.
The school or college needs to return the certificate. Send it to: AQA Records, Devas Street, Manchester, M15 6EX. We'll send the corrected certificate within 28 working days.
