There's a lot of self-congratulating going on today. And, it's not surprising, given more than 400,000 students got accepted onto university courses.
In fact, today is a fine lesson in the art of humble bragging. Too subtle - and it's missed - too much - and you end up looking like Jeremy Clarkson.
And no-one wants that.
There was the loud and proud #humblebrag
I was pictured in the local newspaper when I got my A Level results all those years ago. There was no jumping though. #humblebrag— Catherine Gee (@catherinegee) August 13, 2015
17 years ago I got an A in an A level I was estimated a U in, I remember seeing the face of the teacher who had no faith in me. #HumbleBrag— Aamar (@Mgarfy) August 13, 2015
To the sneakily subtle humble brag..
To the straight up brag. No humility here.
I'm off to Durham, so excited!! #Alevelresults— Ruth Owen (@RuthMOwen) August 13, 2015
So happy with my results!!!!!! #Alevelresults— El (@el_b96) August 13, 2015
To the plain outrageous brag..
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.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) August 13, 2015
All the bragging did start to get on some people's nerves..
Buzzing for people to get into uni and that but please stop with speeches like you've just won an Oscar #Alevelresults— Dani Ross (@_dani_ross) August 13, 2015
Thankfully, Ian Beale stepped in and called for calm to put a stop to the nonsense.
People doing selfies with their results deserve a classic Beale right hook #Alevelresults— Ian Beale (@_IanBeale_) August 13, 2015
