Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil’s ed­u­ca­tion spokes­woman Yvonne McNeilly said: ‘Con­grat­u­la­tions go to all of our young peo­ple through­out Ar­gyll and Bute for their suc­cess in their ex­ams.

‘We want to en­sure that our young peo­ple are equipped to se­cure and sus­tain pos­i­tive des­ti­na­tions and achieve suc­cess in life. Sup­port­ing our pupils to get the best pos­si­ble out­comes is a pri­or­ity for the coun­cil and the suc­cess of these exam re­sults is down to the hard work of pupils and teach­ers, and the sup­port and en­cour­age­ment of par­ents and guardians.

‘My sin­cere thanks to ev­ery­one in­volved in sup­port­ing our young peo­ple.

‘It’s im­por­tant to re­mem­ber, how­ever, that some stu­dents may not have got the re­sults they had hoped for.

‘For young peo­ple in this sit­u­a­tion, we have sup­port in place and staff avail­able to help them ex­plore var­i­ous op­tions.’

Any young per­son need­ing fur­ther sup­port or ad­vice should con­tact their school.
