Best wishes to all of our young people receiving their SQA exam results today (Tuesday 4 August). Early analysis of performance against expectation is underway across our eight secondary schools. This includes courses delivered in partnership with Dundee and Angus College.
Children and Learning Convener, Councillor Derek Wann said: “Session 2019-2020 will be remembered for so many reasons but for our young people studying National qualifications, the year did not finish as planned when exams were cancelled. For our young people, I hope your exam results are what you hope for and wish you good luck in your next steps, whether that’s staying on at school or moving on to your chosen career pathway.”
All candidates will receive their results by post today (Tuesday 4 August). Candidates who have activated their MySQA accounts, will also receive their results by text.
For dedicated results support, the Skills Development Scotland (SDS) Results Helpline is available to offer advice, information and guidance for young people and their parents. The free helpline will open on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 August from 8am to 8pm, on Thursday 6, Friday 7, Monday 10, Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 August from 9am-5pm.
The number to call is 0808 100 8000. SDS advisers are at the end of the phone to help young people and their parents and carers.
