Lost examination certificates

To apply for duplicate certificates or a statement of results, you need to contact the relevant awarding body.

If you do not know which Examination Board/s you took your examinations with, then you need to contact your old school/college, who should be able to give you this information.

Make sure you tell them which year you sat the examination, as the Examination Boards used can vary from year to year.

After you have obtained this information, then you can find the contact details for the Boards, together with the current fees (where appropriate) below:
