Young people in Clydebank will be able to call a helpline for exam support when results are published this week.

Around 145,000 pupils across Scotland will have their final National, Higher and Advanced Higher results confirmed on Tuesday, August 10 after provisional results were published earlier this summer.

Skills Development Scotland’s exam results helpline will be open for calls from Tuesday onwards.

Shirley-Anne Somerville, Scotland’s education secretary, said: “The helpline offers young people an excellent source of advice and I’d appeal to learners who have questions about their next steps to use this valuable resource.

“Whether it’s practical advice about options, or reassurance following SQA results, the advisers are ready to help.”
