A nail-biting wait endured by around 4,000 Renfrewshire pupils ended today as their exam results arrived by text, email and letter.

This is the second year that pupils have sat exams following alternative models used in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Councillor Emma Rodden, convener of Renfrewshire Council's education and children's services policy board, said: "I want to congratulate all students on their results and achievements. Whatever they are, you have worked hard and I hope you can recognise the effort you made to get them.

"Many of you will have achieved what you wanted to, but for anyone who is disappointed with their results and are now unsure what to do, there is help and support available.

"There are so many career routes open to young people, including staying on at school, going to college or starting an apprenticeship. I would encourage young people to speak to their school for advice or call the Skills Development Scotland exam results helpline to talk through their options.

"Knowing that there is no wrong path is important. Each journey into a chosen career is unique and it’s vital we support these individual journeys to ensure young people can meet their ambitions and have the best start in life."
