We issue certificates for all exams with a result of Pass, Merit or Distinction. Unfortunately, an Unclassified result does not lead to a certificate.
For all UK / Ireland entries submitted from 1 January 2022 onwards, entrants choose the type of certificate:
- eCertificate: This is a secure digital certificate which will be emailed to the entrant. Further information: eCertificates
- Paper certificate: This is a printed certificate with security features. Choosing this option incurs a surcharge of £3 (Ireland: €3.50) per exam in addition to the exam fees and any late fees. The Paper certificate will be posted to the entrant's address. When this option is chosen a digital eCertificate is also emailed to the entrant.
Both types of certificate feature a QR code which is also clickable from the eCertificate. This code can be used to validate the authenticity of the certificate via AuthentiQual.com
To make the choice of certificate type in the online entry form, please choose the desired option under "Certificate type":
