Senior high school pupils from across the Falkirk district will receive their exam results tomorrow morning.

More than 147,000 pupils from across Scotland will find out how they performed in their Higher and National 4 and 5 qualifications.

All candidates will receive their results via post, while those signed up to the MySQA service will also receive them via text and email messages.

The SQA website states that sending texts and emails to everyone registered “is a massive task”, and advises that text messages will be sent between 8am and 9am, and by email before 9am on August 4.

Some pupils may receive their results earlier.

Meanwhile, Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is urging students not to panic and to explore as many options as they can after they receive their results.

The organisation has a helpline on standby which will offer advice, information, and support for young people and their parents, whether their results are not what they had hoped or better than expected.

The helpline, now in its 23rd year, will be open from 8am-8pm on August 4 and 5 and from 9am-5pm daily until August 12.

The number to call is 0808 100 8000.
