Jeremy Clarkson gives yearly advice to A level students and this year he has said ‘I got C and 2Us & have loads of friends & a Bentley’. Like every year Clarkson has issued words of encouragement to youngsters as the A-level results have been revealed.

Clarkson wants to prove that A-level results are not everything, and that people can still have a fantastic career if their results are not what they had hoped for. Clarkson took to Twitter and said: “If the teachers didn’t give you the A level results you were hoping for, don’t worry.

“I got a C and 2Us and I’ve ended up happy, with loads of friends and a Bentley.”


This year’s A-level results have been revealed and the number of top grades has nearly doubled. This year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic teacher assessments have been used, and this has raised fears of grades being inflated as teachers have given students “some benefit of the doubt”.

“The overall increase in outcomes this year compared to previous years may partly reflect the change in assessment arrangements,” said Ofqual, the exam regulator.

“For example, teachers may have given students some benefit of the doubt across the multiple opportunities many students had to show what they had learned – quite different from end of course exams.”

Over 200,000 students have seen their university places confirmed and around 192,000 of the students have made their first choice of university.
