    i know u can get another set done, but u will probably have to pay for them, not sure on the price. maybe contact ur school or college and they could either contact tham or give u a number to ring.failing that go online and find the website for the company, ie. edexcel,aqua etc and maybe they will have info on how to do it. not sure how long it will take.

    i lost mine too. I had to get in touch with the exam board and get new ones. I think they were about £15 each.

    Surely it'd only be two certificates because you did your exams over two exam boards? That's the way I have my GCSE certificates, 9 subjects on one page for CCEA and one subject on another page for AQA.

    I never went to collect my GCSE or A level certificates when I was at school, and they throw them away after a while. I've never needed them for applications or anything though so I'm surprised you do.
    I'd imagine it is possible to get some from the exam board though.

    It depends on the exam board. Some charge per subject, others will put all the exams on one certificate.
    I had to have my certificates when I applied for college. They wouldnt just take my word for it. I know its expensive to get new ones, but I just saw it as stupidity tax for me losing my originals.

    Cool

    Use this link
    http://www.edexcel.org.uk/VirtualCon...ic_awards_.pdf
    and you fill out a form and send it to edexcel. All the details are on the form.(including payment details)
    By the way you need to have adobe acrobat reader i think its called to view the form.
    Im doing the same thing. I need them to get into a college.

    i thought collages checked your results on the exam boards database and thats how you got accepted or not...
