SQA have provided the following helpful information ahead of results day:
You will receive your Scottish Qualifications Certificate (SQC) by first-class mail on TUESDAY 9 AUGUST.
If you’ve signed up for My SQA Exam results will be sent out on 9 August 2016 by text message and e-mail from 8am.
If you are going on to university or college, SQA will send your results to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) electronically.
If you are returning for the new session, SQA will send results information to your school or college so that there is plenty of time for teachers to plan next year’s timetables and give you career and course guidance.
If your SQC does not arrive on TUESDAY 9 AUGUST, please contact your school or college immediately. The school or college will be able to confirm your results and liaise with SQA to find out what has happened to your SQC.
If you don’t understand your certificate, or if you think something is missing or wrong, contact your school or college immediately and ask for help. If there is a problem, your school or college will contact us to sort it out.
A telephone service — SQA’s Candidate Advice Line — will also be available from Tuesday 9 August to Friday 12 August. You can ring this line for help and advice on the content and layout of your certificate. However, our advisors will be unable to help you with any queries regarding SQA’s Post-results Services or the breakdown of your marks, and they will not be able to speak to parents or carers without your consent. The advice line number can be found on the letter that accompanies your certificate.
