Due to the school only being open for vulnerable students and critical key worker students, the Exams Office will not be manned on a daily basis.  All contact for the Exams Office should therefore be via email to: exams@georgeabbot.surrey.sch.uk Please do not contact the Exams Office on their telephone line.

 

At George Abbot we have a full time dedicated exams team who work closely with staff and students to ensure all the necessary arrangements are made with regard to entries.

EXAM CERTIFICATES PROCESS

As the UK is now in a national lockdown with schools only being open for vulnerable students and children of key workers, our scheduled January certificate collection opportunity will not be taking place.  Please monitor this page of the website for further updates.

 

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.
