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.
|Exam series||When you'll receive the certificates by|
|November 2020||26 March 2021|
|January 2021||31 May 2021|
|March 2021||31 May 2021|
Students can get a single certificate showing their higher results for each subject from the summer 2020 or autumn 2020 series. To be eligible, a student's results must be from the same school or college.
Only centres can request this from us. Students must contact their school or college to organise this on their behalf.
Please return the student’s original summer and autumn series certificates to us at the address below, along with a cover letter requesting a single replacement certificate.
There’s a fee of £43 per student. The deadline for requests is Friday 28 May, 2021.
If you need June 2020 certificates earlier than 7 November 2020, please complete our application form and send it to email@example.com by 3 August 2020. Early certificates are available from Monday 14 September 2020.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
