if you lost your qualification certificates...

...can you get replacement ones from the examining bodies?

ive got some university interviews next month and have been asked to bring along certificates covering any relevant subjects (GCSE Mathes, English, A Levels and my BA degree). GCSE's and A Levels was quite awhile ago and ive lost them, although i DO have this little slip which looks like paper you usually get doctors' prescriptions on, which has my grades and subjects on them, but says at the bottom 'this document is NOT a certificate'.

ive emailed the exam boards and am awaiting reply, but im a bit nervous cos im desperate to get onto this new course. can anyone enlighten me on this matter?

You should be able to get copies from your school / college (although they may only keep records up to a certain date I guess).

But yes, you should definitely be able to get copies from the examining boards themselves. I'm sure we had to do this for a client at work recently, and he had took his exams years and years ago too. They'll probably be a charge though (I don't have a clue how much).

i know for the sqa in scotland you just have to pay 17 or something and you can get new certificates. i'd presume it was the same for whoever england's exam board is.

actually that reminds me, i need to find mine!

That's what I've used, for both my GCSEs and A-levels. Having said that, I have my BA and PGCE certificates, which I wouldn't have been able to get without my GCSEs and A-levels, so they're not to jazzed about them.

Some exam boards will only issue replacements if you can present either badly damaged certificates or a police note showing they've been stole.n. Or an insurance document or whatever showing you've had a house fire. If you've actually lost them, sometimes you can never get them replaced, but for a fee the exam board will submit a "statement of results" which will serve as the same thing for all intents and purposes

I found this all out recently when I needed to present all my certificates for my new job and found I had no idea where any of them were... got them eventually, they were still at my school which I left 6 years ago!

probably be best if i rang the uni's up and ask them if it's essential. i till have to pick up my BA Certificate cos i missed the graduation ceremony! what course was your post-grad? i hear that some courses are more strict than others. like if you were doing medicine, nursing or social work/care.

Yeah,each course may have different requirements.Mine was in literature and the interview was basically a formality.

i just heard from the examining bodies. replacements cost a small fortune, and in the case of AQA, they cant do proper replacements unless you can prove theyve been stolen or destroyed (like in a fire or something) or damaged.

kids - DONT LOSE THEM!

or better yet, try contacting your old school/college for an official signed letter from the Examinations Assistant. mine was free. not sure how sufficient it is for my interview though.
