    Well not me but my friend. Her school sent a letter about paying for the exams she missed which she payed most for by the deadline she was given. It's now past that deadline and not all was payed. It was said if she didn't pay all the school wouldn't let her go and collect her GCSE results. I've not found anything about this being legal or illegal online so can anyone answer if this is allowed by the school?

    Surely the school would have had the decency to pay the balance at least on loan, but that said that's very foolish of your friend to not to take such an important payment more seriously. Here in Ireland if you don't pay for state exams you still get the results but they are not forwarded to the CAO (Irish UCAS) so I wouldn't particularly panic about not getting GCSE results returned. The Revenue Commission simply deducts the cost of the exams either from your parents or the candidates tax returns - simple! I can't speak for the situation in the UK however.

    Yes, they can withhold the results until the balance is paid.

    This isn't how it works in the UK, for the record.

    What if it is passed the deadline the school set for them to pay it back.

    They can do whatever they want, namely witholding exam certificates. Your "friend" can pay for a statement of results, but they won't get the certificates if they don't pay up.
