Thousands of pupils across Scotland will receive results from National 4 and 5s, Highers and Advanced Highers exams today.

With around 135,000 students awaiting results, Skills Development Scotland is running a free helpline for those seeking guidance.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said: "Exam results day may be the culmination of months of hard work but it is important to remember that, whatever the outcome, it is only the beginning of the journey to your chosen career.

"If you get the results you hoped for that is excellent but be assured that if you do better than expected, or you just miss out on the grades you need this time round, there are a variety of options available to you.

"The expert careers advisers at Skills Development Scotland are on hand to handle calls from students and their parents to provide information on all of the options and opportunities available.

"I would like to wish everyone receiving their results the very best of luck and urge anyone who is unsure about their next steps to get in touch with the SDS exam helpline."

While most students have opted to receive results by post, around 59,000 have chosen to receive them by text or email.

The SDS helpline, on 0808 100 8000, is available for anyone seeking practical advice. It will be open from 08:00 until 20:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
