Contact us on results day

We have provided schools, colleges and local authorities with a report confirming their candidates’ final grades based solely on school and college estimates, as directed by the Deputy First Minister on Tuesday 11 August.

The results of those learners who were awarded a higher grade during the process will be maintained.

We have supplied UCAS with the results and these should be disseminated to universities and colleges on Thursday 20 August.

Revised certificates will be with you on Tuesday 8 September..

Something missing?

If something is wrong or missing from your certificate, call your school/college who will contact us.

Contact our advice line


Only schools and colleges can ask for a review of a candidates results. We can't accept requests directly from candidates, parents or carers.

Return of coursework

We will not be returning coursework to schools and colleges, as the coursework may be used as part of an appeals service, if required.

If an appeal is requested for any returnable materials, we are required to retain this work for 12 months after the final decision is made on grades awarded.
