Statement: Exam results

Monica Lennon MSP, Scottish Labour and Cooperative representative for Central Scotland, said:

“Congratulations to all learners across Lanarkshire on their achievements.

“Results day is always an emotional rollercoaster but having to study and sit exams during a global pandemic has been hugely challenging for pupils. 

“I am really proud of all the young people in Lanarkshire for putting in the work, often while volunteering in the community and going the extra mile to support others.

“A special thanks must go on record to all the teachers and school staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to maintain education services. 

“These results are the product of a huge team effort, including the invaluable support from families and carers. I wish all students well, whether they are continuing their education, embarking on an exciting apprenticeship, or entering the world of work.”
