Another year, another A level results day, another Jeremy tweet joking about said A levels. It’s becoming clockwork at this point, no? Every year at this time, Jeremy is quick to remind everyone that although he got “a C and 2 Us,” he is still doing ok, living large.
Here is Jeremy’s helpful words of advice for the students of the UK:
If you didn't get the right A level results, don't worry. I got a C and 2 Us, and my chef is preparing truffles for breakfast.
Followed by a very important clarification:
They were grated onto my scrambled egg.
Considering the content of some of his previous A level tweets, today’s was somewhat of a letdown.
If your A level results are disappointing, don't worry. I got a C and two Us, and I'm currently on a superyacht in the Med.
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.
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.
While I’m sure Jeremy was just attempting to be humorous, there is a bit of truth to his message. Getting top marks isn’t a guarantee of anything, and there are plenty of folks, like Jeremy himself, who didn’t do that well yet still become successful.
The overall tone of Jeremy’s tweets reminds me of a line from the movie Love Actually:
“Kids, don’t buy drugs….become a rock star and they give them to you for free!”
