    It’s that time of the summer when results season is upon us, and the wait will finally be over for thousands of students eager to find out how well they did in their National 4, National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher results. Tuesday 6th August is no doubt etched into the minds of nervous students, but what about the teachers' expectations?

    A children’s charity is gearing up to help pupils who may be upset about not making the grade but how do you feel about the SQAs and the results day?

    Spot the staff member who hasn't a clue about Scottish education. The kids already know if they've passed National 4 because it's internally assessed (more's the pity).

    A charity to help students "cope with exam stress" blah blah blah. Betcha 90% of pupils using their services expect straight As despite trying not a jot throughout the entire year.

    Results day - most (all ?) of those who worked hard will get rewarded with their expected grade or better; those who didn't work hard shouldn't expect any miracles. Get the dogs out to help cope with their disappointment. Not being facetious here. This is what they do before exams now - sit in a room with some dogs to pet/stroke and calm them down ! (Perhaps should spend that time revising ... ?)

    Teachers' expectations - we've done our job; let the marking and results take their course.

    Excellent post. I've never passed an exam for any pupil. Teachers do their bit by teaching, pupils need to learn what they've been taught - if they don't it's their fault.
