A-level results day can be a day of dread for many pupils to look towards throughout the summer break. However, it’s a day that many have gone through in the past – including celebrity favourites and reality stars.
For many watching Love Island over the years, some of the things the villa’s inhabitants have asked about or said have provided many a laugh, leaving an often embarrassing impression of them behind.
However, they say never judge a book by its cover and some of the Love Islanders of the past have brains and beauty and their A-level results prove it…
Jess and Eve Gale
The Winter Love Island twins caused a stir when they rocked up in the South African villa with their platinum blonde locks and false eyelashes.
The pair were not happy with the boys for insinuating that they were “stupid” because of their looks.
"We're a lot smarter than people give us credit for," said Jess. While Eve added: "Yeah, we basically got all A's in our GCSE's".
The sisters both went to top universities and achieved some impressive A-stars and As at GCSE and A-level.
Eve studied geography at King’s College London, while Jess did psychology at University College London.
Some of the nasty comments on social media got so bad that their dad Brian started defending his daughters.
Hitting back at the trolls, he tweeted: "‘Love Island. Eve and Jess. For the doubters. It is possible to be a girl, look really good, wear make-up, dye your hair blonde and still go to a good university."
Dr Alex George
Some viewers were stunned in 2018 when hunky Dr Alex entered the villa.
After failing to find love on the show, Alex headed straight back to work in hospital and has been posting educational health videos on social media.
Dr Alex actually failed to get the grades he needed on results day, proving that there are plenty of other options if you miss out first time.
Sharing an encouraging message on Instagram, he previously wrote: "Good luck to everyone getting their results today!!
"Ten years ago I missed out on my place at medical school by 2 marks in chemistry and had to take a year out.
"It felt like the end of the world at the time but 6 years later I graduated with a distinction and got my dream job in London. Never give up and dream bit."
Dr Alex got a place at Exeter University which has a five-year accredited Medicine degree course.
To get accepted, successful candidates must have a minimum of three As at A level – although most typical offers are made to people with one A* and two As in academic subjects.
Hayley got a particularly bad reputation in the villa after demonstrating her lack of geography and politics skills.
Most famously, the Liverpudlian model gotslated for her vapid knowledge of Brexit– believing it meant cutting down all the trees and moaning it would be harder to go on her holidays.
She also got confused about an earlobe and claimed not to know what 'superficial' meant.
But a pal unmasked Hayley as a secret cleverclogs, revealing she'd actually scored three Bs at A level and studied Childhood and Youth Studies at Liverpool Hope University before dropping out to be an actress.
"She's definitely not that stupid. I can't believe no one else has said anything," said the friend, who claims she bagged her Bs in ICT, Science and Health and Social Care at John Bosco Arts College in Liverpool.
"She did really well in her A Levels and GCSEs. She managed to get the grades to do that course, but she dropped out to pursue an acting career."
During his time in the villa Michael spoke about his degree in Biomedical Sciences, which he did at Liverpool John Moores University.
To get onto the course, which is either three years or four if the student decides to add a sandwich placement year, you need 112 UCAS points.
An A gets you 48 points, a B 40, a C 32 and a D is worth 24.
This means Michael could have got an ABB, BBB, AAC, or any other combination that adds up to that all important number.
Winter Love Island star Eva didn't last long in the main villa after she made that bombshell return with Naz.
Eva, who is still with Naz, worked in recruitment after graduating from a Business Management degree at the University of Nottingham.
She did very well in her A Level exams – getting an A in Psychology, Bs in Economics and French and A* in her Extended Project Qualification.
Camilla is probably one of the island's smartest ever contestants to enter the Love Island villa.
Camilla boasts a very impressive three As in her A-levels, proving she has brains and beauty.
She also got nine A* GCSEs and a First Class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University.
The 2019 Love Island stars got a shock when they found out a scientist was amongst them.
While she hasn't revealed her exact A-level grades, Yewande did do well enough to earn a place at Athlone Institute of Technology, leaving with a first class honours degree in Biotechnology.
Posting a photo to celebrate her graduation, she wrote: "I'm not going to say it was easy cause that would be one hell of a lie but I did it!
"And I couldn't have done it without the support and continuous words of encouragements from my family and friends so this ones for us. First class Honours in Biotechnology."
Scott Thomas' results kept getting brought up in the villa thanks to Kady McDermott.
Kady made a big deal of his school success on Love Island, claiming he thought he was smarter than her.
She was always muttering about his "three A levels" whenever she talked about him to the other Islanders.
And he did well in his GCSEs too, telling his Twitter followers in 2016: "Good luck with ur GCSE's peeps! I got 4 A* 5 A's and ended up throwing parties for a living and on Love Island! Who would have thought ey?"
