Could someone please let me know if accepting a Provisional statement of results or Candidate statement of results (grade A-C / 9-4) would ensure the learner meets condition of funding? These aims are not shown on the learners PLR and does not have the actual certificates. I know for Standards there is a list we can check this against to see if they would be accepted but I cannot find anything for 16-19 provision.

Students meet the condition of funding when they have already achieved GCSE grade 9 to 4 or A* to C in maths, and in English language, English literature, or English language and literature.
We treat some qualifications in maths, English language, English literature, and English language and literature as equivalent to GCSE grade 9 to 4 or A* to C. This means that students who have studied in England or elsewhere who hold the following qualifications do not have to study maths and/or English to meet the condition of funding:
Students who start their 16-19 study programmes with a grade 2 or below and then go on to achieve a pass in Functional Skills Level 2 will no longer need to undertake any further maths and English qualification to meet the condition of funding.
International GCSEs, regulated or unregulated, or equivalent level 1/level 2 certificates in maths and English all count as equivalent to GCSEs for the purposes of recognising prior attainment in the 16 to 19 maths and English condition of funding.
Students who hold these qualifications in maths and English at GCSE grade 9 to 4 or A* to C will not have to continue their study of these subjects.
Students who have achieved an overseas qualification that is equivalent to a GCSE in maths and/or English language are exempt from the condition of funding.

Thank you very much for this information. Would a learner meet condition of funding if they used " provisional statement of results or Candidate statement of results" In my eyes if they have a provisional statement then they have not achieved the grades yet and these documents are not certificates. Do we need to see the actual certificate or the grades on the PLR before we can say a learner has met condition of funding or can we use the Candidate statement of results/ Provisional statement of results?
