Exam result queries

If you have any queries about getting your results, you should contact your school directly. The main exam boards are only able to help over the phone if a college or university place depends on your results.

Replacement exam certificates

If you have lost your exam certificate and need a replacement you should contact the school where you sat your exam, as they may still have the original certificate. If the school no longer have your records, then they should be able to give you the name of the board you sat the exam with, and you will need to contact them directly.
