Yes, you’ll need certificates of every subject that you for a grade in. Do you know what exam board these subjects were? So you can refer back to the exam board 👍🏻

To prove what grades you got, it may have changed but I’m sure you do need all your certificates?

Have you had a look on AQA’s website to see whether or not it’s mandatory to have certificates in subjects you didn’t pass? It might be worth to do this before spending all that money.

It’s alright, definitely worth to contact them before you spend a lot of money on something that might not be needed.

Do you just have the one certificate?

Are you sure the school doesn't have your certificates? Because the exam board gives the certificates on the MONEY the school pays to sign you up for the exam...

They should have given you all the certificates, you usually have to pay for them if you loose them but not if you've never received them. Did anybody else not receive them?

Contacting either your exams officer or exam board will give you more answers on this, good luck!

Your exams officer is the one that dealt with your GCSE examinations. No problem

You can always check your school my sister left in 2016 too and they still had certificates for students from years ago still kept when I went to get them for her. However this was her a level certificate but it doesn’t hurt to try and contact the school if they still had them
