Hopefully you will have achieved the results you have worked hard for.
If you did not achieve the results you had hoped for there are a number of options:
Contact the school for advice.
If you are eligible for an appeal the school will automatically submit this. The Appeals system has been amended significantly by the SQA.
SQA's appeals service has been replaced by two new ‘Results Services’. These are:
If you require an URGENT Appeal as part of a Conditional offer you must contact the school
I. your SCN number
II.the subject you hope to appeal for
iii the name of the university you have applied to
IV. The course you have applied for
However, the school will only appeal where there is sufficient evidence upon which to base the Appeal. NB Appeals may result in a mark up or down!
You should contact Clearing via UCAS for advice about other courses or options available to you.
Expert UCAS advisers can be contacted on 0371 4680468

It will be open on exam results day and the next day from 8am to 8pm.
