Certificates – Academic Year 2018-19 – Now available for collection from New College Reception
Certificates will be available in January 2020 for qualifications achieved in the previous academic year of 2018-19 (November to June). It is your responsibility to collect these.
Students who are still on roll in college should visit the Exams Office or collect them via the Certificate Distribution Day in January 2020 (Date to be confirmed).
Former students may collect (photo ID required) their certificates from College Reception. We will put information on the New College website when they are available for collection.
It is important that you keep your certificates in a safe place, as you should be aware that if you lose them or require duplicates, each Exam Board charges a fee. Not all Exam Boards issue replacement certificates and may only provide a letter confirming your marks/grades or certifying statement of results. New College does not keep copies of your certificates.
Nominating Someone Else To Collect Your Certificates
You are required to sign to confirm that you have received your certificates and that they are correct. If you are unable to collect them, you will need to give authority for someone else to collect and check them on your behalf. This may be a letter addressed to the Exams Office or an email to email@example.com. The letter/email should state your Student ID number, full name, date of birth, the subjects/levels achieved, contact number and the name of person who will collect them. The person collecting them must show some form of self-identification (photo ID).
College can send your certificates via recorded delivery as a last resort. To do so, send a letter to the Exams Office at New College or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details: your student ID number, full name, date of birth, address, contact number.
You should send a cheque made payable to “NCLT” for the appropriate amount to cover postage and administration (£5 UK, £8 Europe, £10 rest of world – all non-refundable) or pay by card via phone on 01977 702139 (ask for finance).
We strongly advise all students to collect their certificates, as we are only required to keep certificates for twelve months from issue. Certificates will remain in college only until that time. Certificates would then have to be replaced/re-issued by a student’s direct application to the applicable Exam Boards at a substantial fee (approximately £43.00 each).
Replacing Lost Certificates
If you lose an examination certificate and need to replace it, Exam Boards have information on how to do this on their websites. In some cases they will provide a certifying statement rather than a certificate, but in either case a fee is payable to provide the replacement.
