    You'll need to get a replacement certificate from the exam board. This will cost around £35.

    sure Juno, but i don't even know what exam board it was i took it with. Maybe if i contact my old school after the half term, they should know? Or failing that call around? At worst case scenario, take it again??

    Your old school will know. If you're in contact with anyone from school (eg through Facebook) it's possible they might still have certificates and know the details - I still have mine from 2002, so it's not that unlikely.

    It's best to not re-take without telling the uni. They have asked for proof of the initial qualification, so they may see your retake as an attempt to gain the grade - which indicates you were lying about the first attempt. Even if you're not lying, you don't want them to think that you are.

    You can send in speculative enquiries to all the exam boards if really necessary, but you will have to pay for them to search the records. This may still be cheaper than paying fees for a retake, especially if you can narrow down the search at all.

    Yes I have just paid 4*43 hopefully to get copies of my old certificates?
