Deadline: GCSE English Language & Maths Only – Tuesday 28 September 2021

Deadline: GCSE All Other Exams – Tuesday 28 September 2021

EXAM CERTIFICATES PROCESS

Due to the COVID pandemic we were unable to hold our standard exam certificate event in January 2021.  Therefore, we will now hold an exam certificate collection opportunity for ex-students who left in the Summers of 2018; 2019 & 2020 on Thursday 30 September and Friday 1 October.  This event will be held in Elmslie Hall on both dates from 4:00pm-7:00pm.  Doors to the left of Reception will be open for entry and exit. 

Important: This is the only collection opportunity for ex-students to claim their uncollected certificates for 2018 & 2019.  In accordance with JCQ regulations, after this event these will be destroyed securely. 

Ex-students who cannot collect in person can nominate another individual but Exams must be informed in advance by email: exams@georgeabbot.surrey.sch.uk  The nominated individual MUST bring photo ID in order for the school to release the certificates.

However, should an ex student urgently need their certificate(s) the student can request via email to exams@georgeabbot.surrey.sch.uk for an on roll student to collect on their behalf at the end of the school day.  Alternatively, an ex student can request for these to be sent via Recorded Delivery, using the form below.  Payment will need to be made via Wisepay, either through a sibling account or by requesting the Finance Department to reactivate their Wisepay account.

If you have any queries regarding this event please contact us: exams@georgeabbot.surrey.sch.uk / 01483 888024.

 

 

Standard Certificate Distribution Process

Certificates for students taking examinations during the summer A Level and GCSE exam season will only be sent to schools once the Review of Results process has been completed.  The Exam Boards will normally distribute certificates around mid-November.  All certificates will be checked and verified.

Students returning to school after having taken examinations during the summer exam season will receive their certificates during a nominated tutor time.

Students who have left George Abbot will be able to collect their certificates the following January, during a set collection period.  The dates and times for this set collection will be published here.  Ex-students are required to bring Photo ID when collecting.  Ex-students may nominate another individual to collect on their behalf but MUST advise the Exams Office in advance via email.  The nominated individual must also bring Photo ID.

George Abbot can only retain uncollected certificates for a period of one year, after which point they must be securely destroyed in accordance with JCQ regulations. However, you should be aware that some Exam Boards do not offer a replacement certificate service.  In such circumstances the Exam Boards will issue a Certifying Statement of Results.

Alternatively students can request these to be posted via Recorded Delivery.  To complete the form click on the image below and submit this form together with payment to the Exams Office.
