Is there no more important news than A levels?

Yesterday morning I switched off "Today" on R4 as I was sick of wall to wall A Levels with the same rubbish about how results had improved. A Level grades are a debased currency like HM's Honours. I rang one young friend to hear her good news only to be told she was delaying opening the envelope. I regard it a my duty to encourage her self confidence! I expect she had done well though she is fearful. I also heard of someone who was told by a uni that she had been accepted the day before she received her results. So uni knows results before pupils do.
