    An official-looking certificate (usually one for each exam board you've taken exams with) with a list of your subjects and grades.

    You won't get a GCSE certificate on results day, though - just so you know.

    An A5 piece of paper (there will be numerous sheets depending on how many different boards you did the exams with) and it basically names the paper, and then gives the grade.

    I don't know if this works for your school, but at mine we will get a slip of paper saying if we didn't get back into the school's sixth form...
    It might be different at yours though...

    I remember one of mine was all pretty and green, with a nice pattern.
    It made my day.

    If you cared to look a bit further down the forum, you'd see that there is another thread on this topic where TSR users have kindly uploaded their certifcates for us to see.

    An A4 sheet of paper with the exam board logo on the top and the subject(s) and grades on it. Nothing special.

    OH NO! THE DIFFERENCES ARE HORRENDOUS! It says BTEC and not GCSE. That is the only real difference.

    Other than one being a diploma and the other being a certificate, you mean?
