Let me put on my Mystic Chris hat, peer into my crystal ball and predict what will happen in the next two weeks.

The A-level results will be released on Thursday and the papers will be filled with upper-class kids getting 30 A*s at their posh schools saying how they hope to go to Oxford to study the history of fine art and its effect on contemporary cheeses or some such subject.

By Friday, breakfast TV will be full of grumpy old men saying words along the lines of "Exams are too easy these days, at Oxbridge we need 10 entrance exams to find the most gifted students" and generally moaning that A-levels should be scrapped in favour of something far more difficult.

Consider what it must be like to be an A-level student right now, you haven't got a chance really. Even if you do well (by normal standards) everyone is belittling your achievements, as a student with no social life has managed to do better than you and is smugly telling your relatives this on GMTV. Then you've got a bunch of ageing academics saying everyone should have got 100 per cent as the exams are so easy.

Today’s students can only take the exam papers put in front of them and as long as they are happy with their results, and it gets them on the course they wanted, then that’s the main thing.

There's nothing you want to see less when you've collected your results then Lord Snooty picking up seven A*s on the news - because they're so clever they had to take an extra couple. Why can't people just be happy with how our youngsters have done?

Despite what people may say, A-levels are a lot of hard work and the pre-results pressure and uncertainty is unbearable for some. It's not something I'd like to be going through again.

Exactly a week later GCSE results come out and the process will be repeated, except now you have the extra insult to kids who didn't get straight As. Switch on breakfast television and what do you see? The youngest person to ever pass/get a C/get an A at GCSE - must we have these child geniuses on the TV in the same morning some children didn't pass them at 16? Talk about adding insult to injury
