Birth Certificate Help

#1
Hi,
This is my first post, please go easy, or tell me if this is in the wrong section :)

I was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the uk when i was 8, im 17 now and have all my papers, EG- Passport, NHS Number, NI number.

But we had a house fire in the beggining of december, and my Birth Certificate got destroyed :x

It would take about 6-12months to get a new one, and cost about $500usd 8O

Would this be considered exceptional circumstances?
Or would i be barred joining?
Iv got my BARB next friday, and need to take my application in then.

Many Thanks,
Greg

I can't find my fcukin birth cert anywhere, I do have a passport though in-date til next year, will it be ok to go to basic with only my passport? I only have 16 days left now, I have no time to get a new one :(

go to your records office with all your id and your mum and dads birth&marriage certs and buy a copy.

I didn't ask how to do it, i think i know that, I asked do I need it with the passport or can I just take the passport, I have no time to go anywhere as im going to visit my parents before i leave in another country.
