Terms and conditions for Trinity exams:

Trinity are no longer providing a physical paper certificate automatically.  

Trinity ensures that for security reasons the email address is intrinsically linked to your child's digital exam certificate. When your child passes their exam, Trinity will send an email to your email address with a weblink to your child's digital certificate. This email will also provide further instructions on how you can access the digital certificate. It will also provide information about how you may choose to purchase a paper certificate in addition to their digital certificate, via Trinity’s certificate purchasing service (£5). Trinity will use the email address of the candidate to help verify their right to purchase a paper certificate. 

Trinity shares your email address with a third party provider, Accredible, in order to provide your child's digital certificate. 

For further details about how Trinity uses the candidate’s email address please see Privacy Statement | Trinity College London.
