I have my date for the psychometric test...

It says I need to take my original birth certificate, passport, educationcal certificates, NI card and national health card (couple of other things but n/a to me).

The only thing out of that list I have is my passport... Is it essential I have to take all of those things?

I know that my birth certificate is completly lost, therfore I would only be able to get a copy which isn't acceptable :S

Anyone else have a similar problem, it's got me a bit worried.

Thanks in advcanced. :?

I think the following is right, someone will correct me I'm sure if I am wrong.

You can get your birth certificate reissued, or at the very least a notarised copy made (which is legally the same thing pretty much)

NHS card, can be got by asking your GP or phoning the trust to ask who to contact (in my area they are called practitioner services)

NI card is either HMRC or DWP, phone them and they should be able to reissue.

Educational certs - contact the exam board (EDEXCEL, SQA, AQA etc)

If you don't have the documents, apply for them and let the AFCO know you have applied, and bring them in for them to copy as soon as you have them.

Hi Chris!

Welcome to Rum Ration!

When is your test?

Thanks alot! It's may 11th

If you don't have the documents, apply for them and let the AFCO know you have applied, and bring them in for them to copy as soon as you have them.

Okay, so they won't want to put back the test if i let them know i don't have them at the moment?

My main concern was the birth certificate and the NI card ( i know the number)

If i remember correctly (though i could be wrong) i was told that they can only issue you one card.

I guess when they say "copies are not acceptable" they must mean photocopies then, hopefully.

Thanks for the advice, i'll try get those sorted asap...

Edit: typo

I presume you have "lost" any certificates relating to your education as well? Fnarr Fnarr

Have a nice day

Cris can help you on one of those. For gods sake dont get your qualification certificates from the exam board there like 40 quid each! i didnt have mine either. Phone the school you took the exams in and they should have them they will send copies to you. The guys at plymouth were fine with that, also dosent cost you a penny! Hope this helps

I would imagine the number will suffice, the card specfically states that it is not a form of identification so I can see it serving no purpose other than to tell you the number. Similarly NHS card, it is the number that is important, just phone the GP and ask them.

The main thing you must take with you is ID. When i went for my RT a boy only had a few documents, but had NO photo ID with him, and was promptly sent home to come back on another date!
