Thursday is A-level results day, and youngsters throughout the country will be anxiously awaiting their results.
But if there’s one thing that will make you sweat more than a terrible mark, it’s comedian Frankie Boyles’ tweet on results day.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, the 51-year-old wrote: ‘If you didn’t get the A-level results you wanted, remember that we’re only a few years away from the collapse of organised human life.’
Nothing like a good dose of existential dread to get students through the results day hump.
Frankie wasn’t the only celebrity figure to weigh in on grades this week; Jeremy Clarkson also added his two cents.
The former Top Gear host tweeted: ‘It’s not the end of the world if your A level results aren’t what you’d hoped for. I got a C and 2 Us and here I am today with my own brewery.’
He also added to a fan who pointed out his brewery sells exploding ale: ‘The beer, mercifully, is fine. I’m having some now, with my breakfast in the south of France.’
Every year on election day, the 63-year-old takes to Twitter to share his fortune and how he’s made it despite it all.
Despite his U grades, Jeremy spent his vacation on a boat last year.
He boasted about his Bentley the previous year. It was all about his Cotswolds house and Diddly Squat farm before that.

In 2019, he used his large French château as a symbol for his prosperity.
Meanwhile, students expecting their results this morning faced heightened worry as Ofqual, England’s test authority, announced tighter grade limits this year.
As a result, fewer students will obtain their anticipated results this year, as Ofqual aims to revert to pre-pandemic grading.
However, while the number of A-level entrants obtaining top grades has decreased marginally this year, it is still greater than it was before to the coronavirus outbreak.
