If you are in doubt about whether you should send a copy of a certificate, please send it.
What if I've not yet received some of my certificates?
As many students hold conditional offers based on exams you will be sitting in the summer, this is not unusual. Please send all the certificates and results statements that you already have now, then send us the certificates you don't yet have after you have taken your final exams, when they are available. NB We are aware that it may take some time for certificates to come through.
Where should I send the copies of my certificates?
Please send them to King's Admissions Office - see the contact details. Many thanks!
What if I can't find a certificate or statement?
If your school is unable to help, please order another copy from the relevant exam board so that you can send a photocopy to King's. See, for example, the information from:
- AQA: Past results and lost certificates
- CCEA: Replacement certificates
- EdExcel: Replace my certificate
- IBO: IB Replacement documentation (scroll down)
- OCR: Lost certificates
- WJEC: Confirmation of qualifications
US College Board qualifications (SATs, Advanced Placements)
If you have US qualifications from College Board, it's best to send us photocopies of documents they've sent to you. Please don't try to register for King's to receive your results directly from College Board as they normally go to the central Cambridge Admissions Office (outside King's) and risk not getting to us.
