Results Helpline offering support across Scotland

Thousands of young people can access dedicated support from Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) Results Helpline. The free* helpline from Scotland’s career service offers advice, information and guidance for young people and their parents.

James Russell, SDS Director of Career Information, Advice & Guidance Operations, said:

“If your results aren’t what you expected, don’t panic, you have lots of options. This is an unprecedented year with the cancellation of exams and we understand that may cause more worry than normal. Our advisers are here to help you and your parents and carers with information on all the options and opportunities on offer.”

The dedicated Results Helpline will be open on:

  • Tuesday 4 August and Wednesday 5 August between 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
  • Thursday 6, Friday 7, Monday 10, Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 August between 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The number to call is 0808 100 8000. SDS advisers will be available on the phone to help young people and their parents. The skilled professionals have access to information on course vacancies at UK colleges and universities, Confirmation and Clearing, advice about Modern, Foundation and Graduate Apprenticeships and jobs, volunteering or staying on at school.
