    Are people charging for this? Just looking at AQA website and they charge to inform people of historical exams results and if you're having to go back into a DOS system, surely this is going a bit far. Do employers actually accept this or do they need the cerficates? Bit weird it costs as don't the local newspaper normally post exams results??

    I don't charge because its worst case a trip to the exams store and look up the records in a filing cabinet. I am finding (I am the Exams Officer here) that more and more employers (especially public sector) require exam board paper work and will not take the schools word for it. Its one reason why I go on and on to our older pupils about the need to look after their certificates, as dealing with the boards has become an expensive business. If you did GCSE's with all three boards (entirely possible in many schools) thats three seperate requests and its going to cost you over 100 and take quite a while.

    yeah but the local papers normally get the results from the LA's or from the schools direct

    We don't issue the results of indivdual students to the local press, only the aggregated figures.
