  1. Hi
    My dad passed away in September and my estranged mother destroyed all of my education achievement certificates including GCSE's and A Level results. Thankfully I had my Degree with me. I am unsure how to go about getting these re sent to myself as I cannot now remember all the boards used and from reading other posts I gather that I have to send these along with my application for PGCE.
    I would appreciate any advice.
    Thank you

  3. Don't worry it is fairly straightforward - albeit at a cost.
    Go to the website of the examining body (fairly easy to google) and you can request replacement certificates online. There is a charge for each year's worth of qualifications so GCSE counts as one and A Level as another - and each examining board has its own system.
    Although from experience for ITT I think you will only need the GCSE's (English & Maths for secondary / English, Maths & Science for primary).
    I had to do it for my O Levels taken 25 years ago with two now defunct examining bodies but I got there in the end - if I rememeber correctly it took a couple of weeks for the paperwork to come through.
    Good luck.
     
  4. As above, really. A bit of on-line detective work to find who has the records of your old exam board and then sent off a request. It doesn't matter if you have to guess your subjects a bit as they correct it for you.

    First of all apologies for your situation.

    As already mentioned, you're best searching online. Personally if I wasn't sure who the examination boards were I would contact old school friends who you studied with and ask them if they can find their certificates and find out the exact examination boards.
     
  6. I was in a similar situation, and just phoned my old school and asked them which board(s) they used in my final year x
     
  7. Hi,
    Sorry to hear about your tough year. I was in a similar situation last year so I rang my school. They sent me a list of all my subjects, grades and exam boards so that I could then approach the correct boards. My PGCE course only wanted proof of English and Maths GCSE, they were not worried about A levels.
    The exam boards are pretty quite at sending out the replacement certificates, though you do have to pay. :-(
    Best of luck.
