Pupils across Dundee are receiving their exam results today.

And young people are being assured that support is available to help plan their next steps.

Stewart Hunter, convener of Dundee City Council’s children and families committee, said: β€œI am pleased to see the positive outcomes for our young people from this year’s Scottish Qualification Authority exams.

β€œYoung people across Dundee put in a considerable amount of work to prepare themselves for these exams and today more than 2,800 will receive the results that will help them to plan for the next steps in their futures.

"I would like to congratulate them on their achievements and thank our school staff for their efforts, and our parents, carers and families for all the support they provide for their young people, during what is a stressful period.

"Our children and families service is analysing the exam data and a full report on the details will be presented to committee later this year.

β€œStaff are available in secondary schools this week to give young people and their families advice and support, and to discuss all their possible options."

Alternatively, Skills Development Scotland’s Exam Results Helpline is open from 8am - 8pm on 6 and 7 August and from 9am - 5pm from 8 until 14 August.

The number to call is 0808 100 8000. Qualified careers advisers are on hand to help young people who have done better than anticipated or who may not have received the results they were hoping for.
