Instructions for Candiates
Following the release of results, certificates will be issued - normally in November. Certificates are issued when a course has been completed in full. Certificates are not issued where a 'U' grade is awarded. We are legally obliged to hold these certificates only for 12 months after issue.
If you left Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC in the past year and did not collect your examination certificates, you can collect your certificates from the School Reception 08:45 – 15:45. Please check the Exam Boards for the subjects you sat to ensure you collect all your certificates.
If you are unable to collect your certificates, please submit the form from here
Mislaid your certificates and/or left school many years ago?
Exam certificates are unique documents and cannot be replaced if they have been mislaid or purposefully destroyed. In these circumstances, you need to contact the Exam Boards directly to obtain written confirmation of your grades (they will charge a fee for this). In most cases, you will have taken exams with several of the Exam Boards and, if you left many years ago, the names of the Boards may have changed, since several have merged or rebranded in recent years.
We use four main Examination Boards (also called Awarding Bodies): AQA, Pearson, OCR and WJEC/Eduqas. All Exam Boards have websites where students and parents can find information on courses, assessment material, past papers, exam timetables, grade boundaries and much more.
Please see Exam Subjects and Boards for the Awarding Bodies and course codes at Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC.
Access Arrangements for Exams
Some students may require additional support when taking their exams.
Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC bears in mind that it has a duty towards students with learning difficulties and disabilities to make reasonable adjustments to examination arrangements.
Access Arrangements are organised in advance of an examination and are based on evidence of need and a child’s normal way of working. Access Arrangements fall into two distinct categories: some arrangements are delegated to centres, others require prior JCQ and Awarding Body approval.
Access Arrangements allow candidates/learners with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries to access the assessment without changing the demands of the assessment. For example, extra time, readers, scribes and Braille question papers. Most arrangements are made on the basis of tests carried out by a specialist which measure speed, accuracy and/or comprehension. If the standardised score obtained is in the below average arrange, and therefore less than 85, a student may be entitled to extra time, a reader and/or the use of a word processor. Other specific arrangements are made for students with short or long term difficulties as necessary and dependent on their needs.
