Celebrity A-Level results – from the secret brainboxes to the surprising flunkers

The day that every college student dreads is here – A-Level results day.

Dreams will be made or crushed in the opening of an envelope, with some celebrating and some commiserating as they find out how they’ve done.

But while A-Levels are essential if university is your next desired step, there are plenty of other options out there whether you get the results you want or not.

Just look at Geri Halliwell. She scored an A in English language at Camden School for Girls but didn’t bother with uni and instead became a Spice Girl.

While respected Channel 4 journalist Jon Snow only managed to get a C in English language but failed geography and biology before moving college and managed to get enough point to “scrape a place reading law at the University of Liverpool.”

“I was really chuffed I got any A-levels at all, I was a complete dunderhead,” he once said.

Here’s how the rest of the celebs fared on A-Level day…
