Your examination certificates are very important and are evidence of your hard work and school career. If you lose them, they are very expensive to replace, so look after them carefully. Certificates will be sent to the school about 10 weeks after results day. Your certificate will show your final, confirmed results.
Once you’ve collected your certificate, do take a good look at it to ensure that your details are correct, e.g. your name is spelt correctly, and it has your correct date of birth. Should you need to make any changes, please talk to your school or college who will return your certificate to us for amendment and re-issue.
Further information about collection of your certificates will be given during November 2023.
If on the day you have any queries or concerns with the grades that you receive, we have set up a dedicated exams email address to deal with these. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to give you advice and guidance.
Please can you ensure that any textbooks and/or equipment that belongs to the school is returned on this day.

Getting ready for an examination
We will discuss details of the procedures for each exam with students, but it is worth highlighting that it is vital learners are present, punctual and properly equipped for exams. Students will need:
At least two black pens
Mobile phones and smart watches must not be brought into the exam hall. They are allowed to be left in bags, which will be left outside the exam hall. Please note that we accept no responsibility for the loss or damage to this equipment and students are not obliged to bring them into school if this causes a concern.
In the exam room the rules stipulated by the exam board apply. These key points are that learners must be silent and not communicate with anyone else unless they require support from a member of staff. Any breaches of this requirement will be dealt with seriously. We want to ensure that every learner has the best possible chance of success during this period of time.
