Sometimes an employer or a university may request verification of your results certificate before offering a job or place. The British Council can verify your IGCSE, International GCSE and A- and AS-level certificates if required.  

Mistakes and changes 

Occasionally, a form or certificate may contain incorrect or incomplete information, such as a mistake with the spelling of your name, address, date of birth or other information. 

If you are a school student, tell your teacher or school exams co-ordinator as soon as possible about any mistakes

The British Council's verification service is provided to individuals who are UK educational qualification holders.

We verify all education, training and professional awards, including certificates, degrees and diplomas, at all levels issued by any accredited UK institution or organization.

The British Council reserves the right to reject verification of any document if the programme or institution is not recognized by the UK education board, if the document is found to be altered or defaced in any way or if there is any question regarding the originality of the document.

We stamp:

  • both original and photocopied educational documents
  • school certificates issued from recognized UK boards
