Exam results day is coming.

Getting your results can be a stressful time, and some people struggle to decide what to do next.

Whether things don’t go according to plan or better than expected, Skills Development Scotland (SDS) have a variety of options to support learners from 7 August onwards.

Support is available over the phone, online and in person.

Over the phone

Learners, parents and carers can call the Exam Results Helpline–0808 100 8000–to speak with one of SDS’s trained advisers about their options. From apprenticeships to UCAS Clearing, college to employment, they have information on what you can do next.

The Helpline opens at 8am on 7-15 August.
