    It's not even been 24 hours and already they're rolling out stories about amazingly successful students:

    I for one can't even begin to comprehend wanting to do 10 a-levels - why do 10 when you can do 3 and still have as much a chance of getting into the top universities?

    Um, because you'll spend your whole time working and probably not have much of a social life?

    I hate it when the media praise such success while saying the a-levels are easier which I didn’t think they were.

    They are like vultures cherry picking stories such as this, especially for those who have not done well but tried so hard.

    If did decided to do 10 a-levels, I would have no time to do voluntary work (as i want to do medicine) or sports thus becoming a social recluse!!

    And importantly, no time for online gaming, nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
