    Not sure if this is the best place to post.

    I need evidence of my GCE and GCSE results but never received the certificates. The school / college no longer hold the records. Does anyone who studied in Shropshire or around the West Midlands know which exam board they took for maths GCSE's in the 1980's. I did a retake in 1988 at Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology.

    Thanks for any help.

    I suspect you may be out of luck for 1870s records.

    As for the more recent ones: http://www.aqa.org.uk/help-and-conta...s-your-records

    You should be down for East/West Midlands Exam Board, so should contact OCR. However I seem to remember taking some GCSEs from exam boards outside our region for some of the exams (this was in the late 90s). Does the school/college not even have a record of which exam boards they used for specific GCSEs?

    If you are unable to identify the original exam board, you could put in requests to all the current exam boards. It will come up at one of them, but you'll have to pay each time regardless of whether they find anything of not.

    Thanks, I know my 1970's and 1980's (!) exams were taken by different boards. I have alraedy contacted and paid AQA about some but don't want to have to pay OCR for each seies unless I have to!
