Certificates will be posted to the address held on our College database (with the exception of Lancaster University certificates – see below). It is a student’s responsibility to ensure the College holds up-to-date information on their personal records. You can update your details at any of the main reception points (across all campuses), or by contacting the Achievements Department on T: 01253 504177.
If you would prefer to collect your certificate in person, you can do so by visiting the Achievements Office at our Bispham campus. Contact us on T: 01253 504177 to arrange collection. Don't forget to bring a form of ID with you.
What to do if your name is spelt incorrectly on your certificate
Any certificates with incorrect spellings would need to be returned to the Achievements Department, which would then be sent back to the Awarding Body with an amendment request. Awarding Bodies will not re-issue a certificate without the return of the incorrectly spelt one. It can take approximately 3-4 weeks for a replacement to arrive. Please return the certificate to the Achievements Office with a covering letter explaining details of the incorrect spelling. Depending on the nature of the spelling change (for example if any of your names have changed completely), you may need to supply evidence when returning your certificate for amendment (photocopy of passport, driving licence, marriage certificate, deed poll etc).
What to do if you have lost your certificates
If you have lost your certificate, it will cost approximately £40 to gain a Statement of Results or a replacement certificate (costs vary by awarding body).
The College is unable to provide replacement certificates. These can only be obtained directly from the appropriate awarding body. You may find the following links useful if you are trying to obtain replacements:
- Ofqual - This site gives information of Awarding Bodies and their amalgamation.
- A Level Results day – 16 August 2018
- GCSE Results day – 23 August 2018
Results slips will be available on the day from 08.30 to 14.00 in the main reception area at the Bispham Campus. If not collected, they will be sent out in the post via first class mail the same day.
