‘I’m vacationing on a boat’: Words of wisdom from celebrities on A-level results day |  Jeremy Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson proved to be true to form and continued his tradition of sharing his success story on the A-level results day.

For years, he’s taken it upon himself to assure discouraged teenagers that good grades don’t equate to a prosperous future by reminding them of his own career and wealth.

“Don’t worry if your A-level results are disappointing. Got a C and two We’s, and am currently vacationing on this boat,” he tweeted, alongside a photo of a boat deck with scenic mountains in the background.

The former Top Gear host wasn’t the only celeb to reach out to students; sportscaster Jake Humphrey also used his A-level “failure” story to encourage the younger generation.

Sharing a photo of his #1 Sunday Times bestseller, High Performance, he tweeted: ‘Not a bad book for A-level failing, if I say so myself.’

Chef Gordon Ramsay, who has five children, tried to ease the burden on results day with free food.

The restaurateur invited those eagerly awaiting the results to head to Street Pizza in Southwark, London, for a meal on the house.

“I’m going to help you celebrate by cooking the most amazing pizzas in the house,” he said in a video.

“Honestly, I know that these two years have been difficult. Well done, and believe me, it’s not always about the A*s. It’s about understanding who you are.

Massive well done to everyone collecting their #ALevel results today !! Celebrate with pizza on me at Street Pizza Southwark from 11:30am! Gx pic.twitter.com/mQ0tA3EgHy

Astronaut Tim Peake shared his own words of encouragement, admitting his results weren’t what he expected.

“Congratulations to everyone who got the A-Level/T-Level/BTec results they wanted this morning,” he tweeted.

“Don’t be too disappointed if you didn’t – mine wasn’t what I hoped for but if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything.”

A-level scores have fallen since last year, but remain above pre-pandemic results in 2019.

They were expected to be lower than in 2020, when the pandemic forced an upheaval in the education system and teachers assessed their students to arrive at a final grade.

However, with the return of exams this year, the proportion of As and A*s awarded has dropped.

Top grades in England, Northern Ireland and Wales have fallen by 8.4 percentage points from last year’s record results, while A*s alone have fallen by 4.5 points .
