Results help

It’s been a year like no other but we’re here to help, no matter what your results are.

It’s been a year like no other but we’re here to help, no matter what your results are.

Speak to an adviser

Our Results Helpline opens on 10 August. You can speak to an adviser by calling the free* helpline on 0808 100 8000.

No matter what your results are, you have options and you’ll get the support you need from us to take your next steps.

The helpline is open until Wednesday 18 August at the following times:

  • Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 August – 8am to 8pm
  • Thursday 12 and Friday 13 August – 9am to 5pm
  • Monday 16 to Wednesday 18 August – 9am to 5pm

Our advisers have access to information on course vacancies at UK colleges and universities. They can help with UCAS Confirmation and Clearing and give information on apprenticeships, jobs, volunteering or staying on at school.

BSL users can use Contact Scotland. You can use their app to sign with an interpreter who will make the phone call for you. 

If you would prefer to speak to someone in person, most of our career centres are now open for face-to-face appointments. Contact your local centre to make an appointment with an adviser.

*Charges may apply depending on your telephone provider.
