    I need them within 3 weeks for uni.

    I basically need a copy of my Maths (Edexcel IGCSE) which I took in 2007 and English (AQA) which I took in 2008.

    How do I go about getting these?

    You can't normally get copies of lost certificates.
    You can get an official replacement document from the examiners:

    I had to do this for my A Level certs and you fill in a form on the exam board's website, print it, attach your cheque and send it off (make sure you send it to the right office as some of them have more than one, depending on where you live).

    If it's the same as A Level you pay between £30 and £35 per exam board per year, so if you contact Edexcel and AQA, they'll send you an official statement of results that details all of the subjects and grades you got with their board in the academic year that you specify on the form.

    They say to allow up to 6 weeks but I got mine within 2-3 weeks and I had to contact AQA, Edexcel and OCR. They say they won't fast track applications as they're all urgent but there's nothing to stop you calling them and asking how long it's likely to be.
