Clock ticking for pupils to arrange exam results service

Have your say

pupils who want to receive their exam results before the postman delivers the news have been reminded they only have a few days left to register for the service.

Registration for MySQA, the online service operated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), closes at 5pm on Thursday.

Students who have signed up at will receive their exam results via text message and/or e-mail by 9am on results day, Tuesday, August 7.

More than 45,000 pupils have already registered, with nearly a third of the 159,000 awaiting their results.

Steve Borley, head of marketing at the SQA, said: “MySQA lets learners see their results online and manage their details throughout their time at school or college.

“While it’s particularly useful at this time of year when students can get their results via text and e-mail by 9am on results day, MySQA is a year-round service allowing all eligible learners, not just those at school, to access a summary of the vocational and academic qualifications they have achieved over the course of their education and training.”

Between August 7-10, the SQA will operate a helpline for candidates who have questions or queries about their results or their certificates. Candidates should call 0845 279 1000 or visit
