    Hi, I am just wondering if someone who is already on a PGCE course could advise me on a problem I have. I have lost all of my GCSE and A'level certificates. I am wondering, do I have to show these if I get an interview at a university. Or at what stage? Has anyone been through this and had to send off for certificates?

    I was looking up about lost certs and one award body only offers a statement of results, is this acceptable?

    I do have my Alevel results statement you receive when you first get your results, would this be sufficient?

    Any advice from anyone who has experienced this recently would be greatly appreciated.

    I had to get my certificates reprinted because my name was misspelt. It cost me about £60 and I had to send off the ones I had. My uni wanted to see the actual certificates.

    I had a statement of results from the exam board - this was fine as it wasn't just from the school. At my interview they hadn't arrived but this caused no issues, the uni were very understanding.

    I have a statement of results for my Alevels but nothing for GCSEs. It looks like it will cost about £300 to replace them all. Do universities ask for the certs at time of interview or ucas?

    It's usually at enrolment. It's worth phoning all the places you want to apply to and asking if the statement of results will be acceptable before you shell out that kind of money. You never know, you might actually be lucky.

    I think so too, it would be worth giving them a call. do you only show certs if you get a place then?

    Note that my statement of results was official from the exam board (paid for) and not from my school. You may want to check with individual providers what they will accept.

    That's always been my understanding, but if Peachz had to show them at interview, it may have changed.

    The statement of results from the exam board is acceptable as proof. Just as an interesting note, they have to allow this as, like you said, some exam boards no longer offer replacement certificates. If statements weren't acceptable, anyone who lost their certificate (including fire, flood, theft...) Would basically have to do the qualification again.

    When they want them depends on the uni but I imagine most would be understanding if you were waiting for them to arrive, as long as you have them by the start of the course.

    It's worth getting them whatever since even if you don't get on you'll likely need them for any further study or graduate job.
