Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can try to help you today. Do you know which exam board you took the Olevels with?
Is it O level certificates that you need?
I feel if the HR department in the company in Singapore are happy with written confirmation that as a UK citizen I had to have attended full time education then this is a much quicker route to get my
yes it was O levels, but as i started typing , this may takes months, not weeks , 28 days to reply, so i'd rather explore establishing that it's law in the IK to attend full time education
to get the certificates
department of education, have sid they may be able to help, but have asked for a written request, that they will answer in 15 days
as it's such a basic request, i'm amazed that there isn't a simpler way
hi, am i making sense, are you still there ?
sorry for the slight delay. Do they need the information very urgently then?
sorry, wasn't sure how this worked yes, i've been working on this for about 3 weeks, and my potential employer is wanting to start the application, as i'm meant to start work in January.....as it dates back to 1980 the WJEC have stated that if they don't have the results, there is a chance that no one does, which is why i suggested going down the route of establishing it's law to attend full time education
my work experience is 100% relavent to my job application, of which i have more than 20 years of documented evidence and letters of recommendation, so exam results from 34 years ago are not critical, but i must have some written evidence to back up what i am saying
The WJEC is not the only UK exam board. OfQual is the government body responsible for overseeing examination bodies in the UK. They have a list of all the exam bodies past and present and the contact numbers. It may be as simple as phoning each of them till you find the appropriate one.
Their website is http://ofqual.gov.uk/help-and-advice/getting-a-replacement-certificate/
If this does not assist you then OFqual itself may be able to help you with the best way of evidencing that you must have taken exams as you were in the UK at the relevant time and education is manatory from a legal point of view.
i know, and it takes them 28 days to ackknowledge your request, let alone send cirtificates
useless, what a waste of my time
I think the problem you will have is doing this quicker I'm afraid.
What further would you like to know I note you have given a poor rating. I am sorry if it was not the answer you wanted.
this exchange has not helped in any way, i don't think you read my original question.......feels like a waste of my time
I did read your question, you asked for ideas? Do you have anything specific in mind?
my question related to the act of parliment that was in force when i attended school which would then establish that as a UK citizen i would have been legally obliged to attend, you asked if i was after O level cirtificates, when i'd already explained this in the question......don;t mean to be rude, but have spent most of today hitting brick walls, and this feels like another one, so over and out ...thanks
So how would this act of parliament help you? Are you looking for the provision that helps you? I am sorry but your quesiton was not clear if that was what you wanted. Please confirm if it is and I will be able to continue.
