The anxious wait is now over for thousands of pupils in the south of Scotland.
Those who took Higher and National Four and Five exams before the end of term found out their results this morning.
It's the first time pupils have sat a new version of the Highers exam, and a record number of Highers have been awarded.
Pupils at Peebles High School were amongst those celebrating:
I'm very pleased I got two As a B and a C.
I can do my advanced highers that I chose to do and I'm looking forward to it.
I want to go to university and study media and communications, hopefully go on to do radio when I'm older."
Political Editor Peter MacMahon says some eyebrows have been raised by today's results for the new Higher exams.
The number of passes was up more than five percent on the previous year. But critics question the fairness of the new system.
