Diplomas

Diplomas are sent for review and ratification by one of our diploma committees. This process is a vital part of our quality assurance procedure and may take up to three months.

Mark forms and certificates

Unless otherwise requested during entry, mark forms and certificates are posted to the applicant named on the entry form, whose responsibility it is to pass them on to candidates. 

All successful candidates receive a copy of the mark form and a certificate that specifies the subject and grade in which they have been examined.
