Certificates for Summer Exam series are received by centres in November of the year the exams were taken, this is to allow time for enquiry about results and access to scripts. The BRIT school sends out all certificates to students as signed for recorded delivery to the student home address on record. Please check your current student address with student services if you have recently moved.
The qualifications certificates are the students only authenticated record of achievement from the awarding body and should be stored securely for future employment, further education or personal development requirements, and where third parties may ask to see your record of achievement.
If a certificate is not signed for when posted, the Royal Mail will leave a red collection card for the student to collect the certificate from the local sorting office. Any certificates uncollected by the Royal Mail deadline of 14 days will be returned to the school. They can take up to 9 months to return uncollected posted certificates. The exam team will contact you on the student details on record, if a certificate is returned to the school.
