A total of 2,056 social media accounts took part, sharing a total of 4,778 posts. The campaign reached 6.8 million people, and made 21.4 million impressions. Here are some highlights from the day:
To reassure young people receiving their results, interior designer Anna Campbell Jones revealed her experience in not getting into the art school she wanted to go to. This experience was key to Anna becoming the successful interior designer and TV presenter that she is today.
A few of Anna's many notable achievements include working as the director of her own interior design company: Habitus, presenting Channel 4's "Hire My Home" show alongside being a judge on Scotland's Home of the Year.
Here is Anna's message to young people receiving their results:
"It's exam results day in Scotland!!
I hope everyone's got the results they are hoping for
If you didn't please be reassured that life and career after school is rarely linear.
I didn't get into the art school I wanted to and was so disappointed.
I ended up going to a local college in Hounslow and they suggested I try Glasgow School of Art.
Literally everything in my life since has stemmed from that and would not have been without that initial derailment
This is me in my happy place, the first summer break after starting art school in 1989, doing a bit of sailing and a bit of art."
âAldi Scotland also took part in this year's campaign to celebrate the achievements of Kerr, a young store manager who has worked for the company since leaving school:
âAldi Scotland shared:
"From School to Store Manager"
Sharing this #NoWrongPath journey following exam results day!
Kerr proves that success takes its own route. Started as a Store Assistant at Aldi, now proudly managing the Aldi Bathgate store. Cheers to unique paths and endless possibilities!
Eilidh Jamieson the artist behind Ejay Design reassured young people by sharing that it's okay to not have a solid plan. Eilidh did not take the traditional university route, however, now runs a successful art business! Along the way, Eilidh worked in many other roles before landing where she is now.
Here is Eilidh's message:
"Today, students throughout Scotland will receive their exam results.
With @dyw_outer_hebrides , there is #NoWrongPath no matter what you choose.
10 years ago after school I was working as a barista and cleaner to save money for a gap year in Australia. I now own an art business in Stornoway.
I didn't follow the traditional university route and chose to study online instead so I could save some pennies and see the world.
Even after my first year as a graphic designer, I went back to housekeeping and bar work as I never knew what I wanted to do.
Not many people have it figured out at 18, I certainly didn't! Just work hard and be kind, the rest will fall into place."
Sandy Begbie CBE FRSE and Elma Murray shared their career journeys and experiences to reassure young people receiving their results.
