Replacement certificates: if you have lost your GCSE certificates you will need to contact each of the exam boards you took exams with and give them your personal details so they can produce a replacement for you. They usually charge for this service. If you can remember the old exam board name but don’t know the new name we’ve attached a list. Our school ‘centre number’ is 23336.
Replacement statements of results/records of results: if you need a replacement history of your results you should contact Murray Park School Exams Office on 01332 540024 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make enquiries about a copy (providing a record is still available on the school database). You should will be asked for your full name, date of birth and year the exams were taken. The report will be a basic list of subject, grade and date the exam was taken in month and year only.
