No, not the blog, the REALITY:
Can't believe no fat ugly women are allowed to sit the exams.
you vile man
The rest of them look like awful people who should be not be able to sit any A levels due to them being sent to work in the salt mines.
I wonder if they've included the obligatory pictures of students jumping for joy
Glad to see that's still the case.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Come on, jump up in the air with knees bent! You know, and smile more! You've just passed your exams!
MIRANDA MAGAFFIGAN: But we all of us know that it'll just be alongside some text saying that A-levels are a piece of piss now...
DENISE MARLSCOE: ... and that independent coursework doesn't prepare students for university, despite the fact that that statement is obviously bullshit
MARLA ROSCALETTE: I didn't know they'd do that
MIRANDA MAGAFFIGAN: Well you got a U for Media Studies so if anything that just proves my point more
in the article.
is this how you get your results nowadays?
was he always that colour?
of me and my mates meeting James Murphy to the Guardian photo gallery, and they accepted it
Well done :D
very, verra clever
Thanks guys, this has been the greatest achievement of my day. I was about to say that I was most honoured about former Planet Sound editor John Earls tweeting about it, and then I just saw that DFA Records themselves had also mentioned it. So now I'm not sure. Anyways, glad to spread some smiles
Congratulations doesn't seem like quite the right word to use, but congrats!
I'd love to see the people banging on about exams getting easier actually take one of the papers.
that woudln't be fair
they make it sound you could probably pass the exams by daubing your hand in ink and just wiping it across the page.
Makes me feel so thick. Also I am incapable of feeling happy for other people
The girl who got 6A*s looks like she might actually be a nice person. The rest look like fuckwits.
sound like a bit of a cunt here, mate
I wasn't even being bitter, as I've done almost as well as a lot of them. I'm just a cunt who hates pictures of smiling photogenic teenagers.
I have a roll of toilet paper, its worth more than their certificates.

Nah mate. They're young, happy, and going to uni to have a hell of a lot of fun, realise their potential, and subsequently get high paying jobs/become academics - advancing society's knowledge base. And you live in Fareham.
a-levels day makes me feel a bit sad. they have the world at their feet :'(
as a graduate with no social life and an uncertain future
(Except about the bloke being in Fareham.)
'east norfolk sixth form college' where they record the video is where i went
not gonna read this
was chatting w/ one of my lecturers about this once though and he said there are loads of universities that can qualify for the Russell Group if they wanted but consider paying the half a mil that they ask for a waste
Which they should in the name of balance.
