Uncollected Results Slips

Uncollected results will be posted second class to your home address at 2pm. if you are unable to collect your own result and you would like someone to collect on your behalf, then you are able to leave an authorised letter with the Exams Office.

Vocational qualification results (including BTEC) are released on a rolling basis and are sent out to students as we receive them throughout the summer. Students will receive their certificate through the post to their home address. The certificate will indicate the overall grade with a breakdown in the transcript. If students have any further queries about their results please contact the college on 01935 423921 and ask for the exams office or email exams@yeovil.ac.uk.
