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.
