Firstly, congratulations to all of those who recieved their results today!

I have heard various rumours that GCSE's are only valid for 5 years.
Is this true?


I recieved my GCSE results in August 2005, so are they only valid until August 2010?

Until you die, or you decide the qualification is terribly outdated and ought to be replaced. I can imagine this happening with ICT in 10 years, when Office 2000 is old school. :p:

They never expire because when you come to write a CV, under your academic section, you would have:
X GCSE's at Grades A*-C including
English - X
Maths - X

Nah, you're all wrong, I've got a stamp on my AQA results sheet: "Best Before end: July 2015", but if I keep them in the fridge I should get to 2020 at the very least.

Well, untill the next **** comes along saying the qualifications are usless and wants to overthrow them with apprentships or course awards or some other stupid idea so their mark can be left on the education system.

Rendering the qualifications in a much lower regard than they should be...

Yes, they'll accept your O Levels, though you'll need higher qualifications too (eg A Levels or an Access to HE course) and sometimes evidence of more recent study.
