10 tales from Twitter to soothe the woes of A-level results day
From still being in PJs at 11am, adults share how their post A-level life is working out.
A-level results day might be marked by pictures of students jumping aloft with their results in hand.
But for anyone who did not get the grades they hoped for, Twitter truly delivered on the jokes.
People who have been adulting for a while offered up life lessons for disappointed students or just pointed out the absurdity of some people detailing their results.
