Examination certificates are valuable documents as they are the official legal record and should be looked after very carefully.  We cannot provide a replacement. The Exam Boards have information on their websites about obtaining a certifying statement of results should you lose your certificate. They will charge a fee.  If you are unsure about which exam board to contact see https://www.gov.uk/replacement-exam-certificate/if-your-old-exam-board-no-longer-exists. We no longer hold certificates before the academic year 2015-16.
