There is no wrong path to success

What is #NoWrongPath?

#NoWrongPath is a social media movement which aims to provide inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their exam results.

We recognise that some young people may be disheartened by their exam results this year particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the disruption that has been caused, so we are aiming to demonstrate to young people that many people in interesting job roles across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there.

#NoWrongPath aims to show young people the options that are available to them and that exams results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.

Find your path

About to receive or just received your exam results? Worried about what the future looks like?
