How do I remove students from a project?

Star and SuperStar Awards

You can add or remove students at any time during the entry process by editing the numbers in Tell us about your group, so that you are charged the correct entry fee and sent the correct number of certificates and badges.

Please note, in the UK there is a minimum order size of five CREST Star or SuperStar Awards due to the cost of postage. For projects outside the UK, there is a minimum order size of ten CREST Awards due to the cost of postage.

Once you move to the payment stage you are no longer able to edit student information.


Discovery and Bronze Awards

If you created your project online using My CREST Account edit student information using the Edit students button on your project dashboard.




You will need to discard the student information you added and upload a new file.


You can edit student information at any time, until you complete your project assessment.
Please note, for projects outside the UK, there is a minimum order size of ten CREST Awards due to the cost of postage.


Silver and Gold Awards

You can remove students information at any time during the application process by editing your answers to Tell us about your group.
Please remove the student information from the relevant row of the table, and move up information from the other student rows if necessary.
Then change the number of students, so that you are charged the correct entry fee.
Once you move to payment you are no longer able to edit student information.


Anonymous students

If you’ve previously added a student to a project, and you need to hide their identity, contact CREST support. We can remove their name from the system. We can also send you a blank certificate for that student when they’ve achieved their Award.
