Jeremy Clarkson Is Here With Some Sound Advice On A Level Results Day
It wouldn't be A Level results day without these two essential ingredients:
1) Someone opening their results on live TV and not getting what they needed.
2) Jeremy Clarkson tweeting to remind us all that he didn't do too well in his A Levels and that he is still very rich.
Seriously, it's an annual thing. People wait for it. He gets tweets from his followers asking when he's going to share it and what he's up to on results day.
In 2014 he had this wonderful reminder for students:
If your A level results aren't joyous take comfort from the fact I got a C and two Us. And I have a Mercedes Benz.

Here he is in 2015:
If your A level results aren't great, be cheered by the fact that I got a C and two Us. And I'm currently sitting in a villa in St Tropez.

2016, he was on not just any yacht, a superyacht:

Give us a break, mate.
But to anyone that is stressing out today - Northumbria University psychology expert, Sandy Wolfson, has a bit of useful advice. It trumps Clarkson's anyway.
Sandy says that the best thing to do is close your eyes and imagine yourself somewhere pleasant, like on a beach or at the top of a beautiful mountain. Just go to your happy place.
Then purposefully tense all the muscles in your body and then let them all relax - repeat. You could even start reading this in a peaceful tone.
Dr Wolfson also advises that puzzles is a good way forward to keep you distracted. Things like sudoku are best because they're simple yet absorbing and stop your brain thinking about any nightmare outcomes.
