Political pundits, teachers and pupils are gearing up for the release of A Level results in the next two weeks, with the shock news that results have stayed exactly the same as last year.
18 year olds, and smart arsed 16/17 year olds who took the exams early are soon to learn whether or not an important piece of paper means they will spend the rest of their lives in an unfulfilling office job, or spend three years working on a degree, before spending the rest of their lives in an unfulfilling office job.
Teachers are said to be disappointed. One, who wished to remain anonymous said: "All that hard work. I wanted to show that sanctimonious little git who's job I took over last year was a worse teacher than me, but the results will show we are both equally inept."
An 18 year old said: "I don't really care. As long as I get good results it will be fine with me."
