Good luck all!

EXAMS are in full flow in secondary schools across Dumfries and Galloway.

The 2024 SQA exam diet kicked off on Monday for National 4/5s and Higher and Advanced Highers.

Young people from S3 to S6 will sit examinations in a variety of subjects across the next few weeks, in the classroom, the computer suite, the exam hall, the PE block, the art class and the science laboratories.

Wishing them well, Councillor Richard Brodie, who is chair of the council’s education and learning committee and a former teacher, said: “I would like to wish all learners in all of our schools across the region the very best with your exams and I am confident that all your hard work will be rewarded.

“Over the next few weeks, it will be a very stressful and important time for young people, and I’m sure that each and every pupil will do their best.

“It’s often an anxious wait to get the exams kicked off, but as of now, the exam diet is underway. No matter what the subject, no matter what the level, give it your all and do not put too much pressure on yourself on the outcome.”

Vice chair Councillor Maureen Johnstone added: “We know that results day will be on August 6 this year and for many, if not all, this will seem like a lifetime to wait for the results of this year’s exams.

“I would urge all learners to use the support networks that are available if they’re struggling during or after their exams. There’s some excellent resources available on the SQA website as well as help and advice from our own teaching staff within our schools.

“Good luck to everyone sitting exams this year.”
