I believe at a time up until around the late 80s or early 90s the examination boards for schools, colleges and universities just deleted all their records and binned the old exam paper a couple of years after the student did their exams. And this lead to the situation where people were claiming that they achieved a particular qualification but has lost their certificates and the examination boards had to take their word for it and issue a new certificate with whatever grade they wanted on it.

Back at the time know people who did this and went from average students to star pupils overnight.
