How to find my GCSE exam results

Updated April 17, 2017

During a career in secondary school, students in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland participate in General Certificate of Secondary Education exams, or GCSE. Each subject matter taught in secondary school is covered on a separate exam that is given at different times. Upon completion, students receive their results along with a Certificate of Completion awarded by one of the five educational boards that administer the exam. If you need to access your past results or request a new certificate, you can do so through one of the boards.
