UCAS A-Level Results Day 2016: Jeremy Clarkson's University Advice Is Funny But Perhaps Not That Helpful

Well, at least someone's having a lovely day.

Jeremy Clarkson has offered some sage A-Level results advice.

Nervous teens across the country are on tenterhooks this morning as they await their A-Level results, hopefully buoyed by an outpouring of support on Twitter.

Amongst the messages of hope and nerves, one stood out in particular.

That of a certain Mr Clarkson

The sage advice is comforting to a point - only so many failed GCSE students can go on to become outspoken TV presenters with a penchant for mild racism and explosive outbursts over a plate of cold food.

Response to the tweet was mixed.

Some took solace.

Some drew inspiration.

Some made their own inferences.


And a lot of people just reminded him he tweeted pretty much the same thing last year... 

For reference, this is what he said in 2015.


 We look forward to see what luxury Clarkson is indulging in this time next year.

Back in the real world, a record number of A-level students have achieved a university place, up 3% on last year, Ucas chief executive Mary Curnock Cook said.
