Celebs offer support to students

Celebrities are tweeting their support for students finding out their A-Level results.

It's a hugely nerve-racking experience, something that can be compared to your driving test or that dreaded dentist appointment.

Students nationwide will soon be finding out if their grades rubber stamp their place at University or if they have to make a nervous phone call to see if their efforts are good enough.

At such a stressful time, celebrities have been tweeting good luck messages to those holding the brown envelope with anxious looks on their faces.

For the 29th year in a row, the overall pass rate was up, with 97.8% of A-level entries scoring at least an E grade.
