Enquiries about results
We offer a number of enquiries about results services.
Certificates, certifying statements, verification of results
We send you your certificates up to eight weeks after provisional results are released. This is to allow time for us to resolve any enquiries about results. The certificates confirm candidates' results as final.
Candidates can apply to us if they would like their results to be verified or for a certifying statement (an official document from us to show the grades they achieved in a particular exam series).
Certifying Statement Application - Results and Certificates - Form 7
Third Party Verfication of Results Application - Results and Certificates - Form 8
If you are paying by credit or debit card, you can apply for certifying statements online instead of using 'Results and certificates - Form 7.'
Priority results information
If a candidate needs their provisional results to be sent straight to a particular institution, they can complete and send us Results and certificates - form 9. We will send the provisional statement of results to their chosen educational institution on the day that results are released.
Results are produced using the name given for the candidate at the time of their exam.
Results for group awards
You need to be aware of the grading system for group awards so you can answer queries from your candidates when they see their statements of results. See the relevant sections of the Cambridge Guide to Making Entries for more information on Cambridge International Certificate of Education (ICE) and Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE). The Cambridge Guide to Making Entries is available to download from the 'Support Materials' section of CIE Direct.
Candidates can apply for the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma by substituting up to two accredited Level 3 syllabuses from other exam boards, for Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subjects. Download and complete the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma Application form.
Cambridge Pre-U Diploma Application form
The application must be submitted by the centre where the candidate sat the Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Research (GPR) and Principal Subjects exams. We will accept applications after the outcome of any result enquiries for up to 13 months.
