What is the Successful Candidates Register (SCR)?
AXELOS’ Successful Candidates Register (SCR) provides details of any candidates who have previously passed an AXELOS examination and have opted in to have their details displayed. The AXELOS system uses the register to cross-reference and verify candidates’ certifications before adding these to their profile.
Candidates can choose to opt out of this public listing if they wish when they register for their examination with PEOPLECERT. This register is maintained by PEOPLECERT and AXELOS cannot amend the data held on it.
If you are concerned that your certification is not appearing, has the wrong details or if you do not know your candidate number, please contact PEOPLECERT customer service.
Why is my certification not listed on the SCR?
Your certification will not be listed if you have opted out of being added to AXELOS’ Successful Candidates Register (SCR) when you took your examination. If you did not opt out of being added to the SCR, please note that there is a processing period for adding your certification to the SCR of typically 6-8 weeks. So if you attained the certification recently, this may be why it has not yet appeared on the register.

Can I cancel my membership and receive a refund or a partial refund?
Membership of the AXELOS Membership is non-refundable due to the immediate availability of downloads, resources and other benefits. You can cancel your membership at any time. Any digital badges you may have claimed will be removed as the badge is dependent on membership.
Do I need to sit the PRINCE2 re-registration exam if I maintain my digital badge?
The purpose of the re-registration is to ensure that your PRINCE2® knowledge is up-to-date. Completing CPD and earning a digital badge provides an alternative way to demonstrate this relevancy. It is up to you to decide which method best suits your professional needs.
If you wish to sit the PRINCE2 Agile® exam, your PRINCE2® digital badge can count towards the eligibility requirements.
