Exam certificates

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.

Early certificates

If you need June 2020 certificates earlier than 7 November 2020, please complete our application form and send it to results@aqa.org.uk by 3 August 2020. Early certificates are available from Monday 14 September 2020.

Missing certificates

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 results@aqa.org.uk.

Correct a certificate

If a student's grade has changed since their certificate was printed, you can get a corrected version for free if you send back the original certificate. For all other changes there's a fee of £43 per student.

The school or college must return the certificate. Use recorded delivery to send the incorrect certificate and details of the correction to:

AQA Results
Devas Street
Manchester
M15 6EX.

You should receive the corrected certificate within 20 working days.

Replace a certificate

We can only provide replacement certificates in exceptional circumstances. See past results and replacement certificates.
