  • For most qualifications we issue a 'Certifying Statement of Results' and not a duplicate of the original certificate. Please check our Application information page for further details

  • For General Qualifications e.g. GCSE, if you state the qualification and do not list subjects we will send all subjects that we have on record for that qualification. Often schools/colleges use various Awarding Bodies in the same year and some/all of your results could be held with other Awarding Bodies
  • We require one application per qualification for most of our qualifications, please refer to Application information page for further details
  • We cannot remove subjects that have been awarded from a certificate
