Information about new and replacement certificates is located here.


Full certificates are posted out to your home address via Royal Mail Signed For delivery. This means someone must be in the property to sign for your certificate. If no one is available to sign for the certificate a ‘Something for you’ card will be left by Royal Mail detailing if it has been returned to the depot for redelivery or collection, or given to a neighbour.

If your certificate has been returned to the depot and is not collected by you it will be returned to the College. In this instance please come to the Exams Office to collect your certificate in person. Uncollected certificates will be destroyed after twelve months.

Please make sure the College has your up to date address!

A Level and GCSE

A Level and GCSE certificates are only released by the awarding organisations in November. We endeavour to process and post these out as soon as possible after this date.

Vocational Qualifications

Certificates for on-demand and vocational qualifications come into the Exams Office all year round. We endeavour to process and post out certificates as soon as possible.

Replacement Certificates

York College cannot order replacement certificates if you have misplaced your original certificates. To order replacements please contact the awarding organisation directly. There is usually a charge for this service. If you do not remember what awarding organisation or your candidate number / registration number, contact the Exams Office and we may be able to help you.

Amending Certificates

If you have received a certificate and your personal details (name, date of birth) are incorrect, or you believe the grade is wrong, please contact the Exams Office as soon as possible. You will have to return the original certificate to be securely destroyed before any amended certificates can be issued.
