Need your old exam results?

UCAS have provided a guide on how to obtain old exam results. You can access this information by clicking this link to their website: 


You will need to find out which exam boards your exams were with in order to request replacement transcripts. The main exam boards used within the UK are:

  • OCR
  • AQA
  • Pearson/Edexcel
  • WJEC
  • CCEA

Gov.uk has provided information on what you can do if your exam board no longer exists. You can find this information here: https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate/if-your-old-exam-board-no-longer-exists 

Schools and colleges are required to retain certificates for a period of 12 months after they are issued, however, we may still be able to help. Although we may not be able to provide you with a certificate, we can provide Universities and Colleges with a copy of your exam results, however, we can only go back so far.
