Types of replacement certificate document

The type of document you'll receive will depend on the qualification you completed and when. The 3 types of replacement certificate document are: 

We'll provide a Certifying Statement of Results if you apply for any of the following qualification types:

  • GCSE, Edexcel Certificates and International GCSE
  • GCE AS and A level
  • International Advanced Level
  • Edexcel Digital Applications qualifications (AiDA, CiDA, CiDA+ and DiDA)

  • CSE, CEE and Joint CSE/CEE
  • Advanced GNVQ and AVCE (Advanced Vocational Certificate of Education)
  • ASET qualifications
  • JEB qualifications
  • EDI and LCCI qualifications completed before 2007

A Certifying Statement of Results is an official document that replaces your original certificate. It’s printed on certificate paper and includes the hologram that proves the document’s authenticity. It may not be printed on the same certificate paper as your original certificate but it’ll show similar information, including all of the subjects you took and the grades you achieved.

At the bottom of a Certifying Statement of Results there is the statement ‘this is not a certificate’. We're required to print this on all Certifying Statements of Results to show that the document isn’t the original certificate. If an employer, university or other education institution has concerns about the statement, you can reassure them that the Certifying Statement of Results is an official replacement document, issued by Pearson.

A Replacement Certificate is an official document that replaces your original certificate.

A Notification of Performance / Certificate of Unit Credit provides the details of units completed within a vocational qualification.

These documents are printed on certificate paper and include the hologram that proves the document’s authenticity. They may not be printed on the same certificate paper as your original certificate, but will show all the same information, including all of your subjects and the grades you achieved (where applicable).

We'll provide a Letter of Confirmation if you apply for any vocational qualifications for which we hold results and were completed before 1985.

A Letter of Confirmation is an official document produced when we can't provide a replacement certificate or certifying statement of results.

It’s printed on certificate paper and includes the hologram that proves the document’s authenticity. It won't be printed on the same certificate paper as your original certificate but it’ll confirm that you completed your course and provide details of the units you completed and any grades, where appropriate.
