Free exam results helpline
Young people expecting exam results next week have a helpline that offers advice and support to those unsure about the next step.
The Skills Development Scotland helpline will be open from 8am on August 9, when Higher and Advanced Higher results are due.
Help is available from career advisers with access to information on course vacancies at UK colleges and universities, confirmation and clearing, advice about modern or foundation apprenticeships or employment.
Careers coach Tracey Gray, who works at Stonelaw High School, said: “Some people might not get the results they hoped for or may have done better than they anticipated.
“It is vital that young people and their parents don’t panic. The helpline is there to give support and information about all the different options young people can consider.”
The helpline number is 0808 100 8000 and it will be open from 8am to 8pm on August 9 and 10 and from 9am to 5pm until August 17.
Students expecting results for higher and advanced higher exams this summer are also being asked to ensure they have activated their MySQA account.
The online portal is designed to give people quick and easy access to their results, but students will only receive a text or email notification when they are registered.
When registration is complete pupils should then make sure their email and mobile number is correct.
Students who have done this but still do not have their results should contact SQA straight away on 0345 279 1000.
