Receiving test results via text

A new system which allows students to learn of their exam results by text has been hailed a success.

A total of 58 teenagers received notification of their results via mobile phones on Monday - a day before the results were officially released.

The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) said the pilot had "worked well" adding that it could now be rolled out to schools across Scotland.

The pupils involved were also due to receive their results by post.

Are they using some sort of system here, what with us being a huge proponent of texting? It would be nice to know in advance, rather than wait for the results at the end of the semester.

And through post? Kuripot dito e, even though our postal system's efficient enough (at least in my experience).
