Nearly 30,000 young people who applied to go to university or college in Scotland have been accepted following the release of the Scottish exam results this morning.
A total of 28,900 applicants were successful.
This is a 2% increase compared with exam results day last year, according to admissions service Ucas.
Of the total, 22,770 are Scottish, which is an increase of 550 compared with the same stage last year.
Applicants can now use the Ucas website to see if they have been accepted or if they are eligible for "clearing", when universities and colleges offer their remaining places.
"Congratulations to everyone who has secured a place at their chosen university or college in Scotland. There's every reason to be positive if you find yourself in clearing this year."
