Rachel Riley, 33, who obtained four As at A-Level, has spoken out on A-Level results day 2019 via her Twitter account.
The Countdown favourite explained she hates articles on the matter which state the amount of people who have achieved top grades has fallen.
Rachel said they “wound” her up when she was a student, and admitted they still annoy her now.
The TV star shared a story which came with the headline: “The proportion of students achieving the top grades at A-level has fallen to its lowest level for more than a decade, this year’s results show #alevelresults2019.”
Along with the article, Rachel argued: “These headlines wound me up when I was a student and still do now.”
She added: “A quote from the actual article:
“’Overall, A-level pass rates & the percentages reaching each grade never change very much, as exam boards & regulators seek to maintain standards over time’. #alevelresults2019.”
In a follow-up tweeted, Rachel shared a positive message to her fans as she urged them to be “excited” about what’s next in their life.
The expectant mum, who is married to Pasha Kovalev, said: “I hope everyone’s efforts paid off today!
“Be proud of all the hard work you put in, now relax and start getting excited about your next steps.”
Giving more great advice, Rachel commented: “Whether they’re what you’d hoped for or plans have had to change, you’ll make it work for you. Happy #alevelresultsday folks.”
Many of Rachel’s 646,000 followers were pleased with her posts, with one person replying: “Precisely. It’s never all about grades. When you come out of education, be focused. Give everything in your next step. If you excelled with grades but flunk the next step, you’ll be worse off than someone who struggled to get grades, but excelled at their first challenge.”
Another simply said: “Great advice.”
A third commented: “My daughter is one of those that did get top grades this year & was constantly revising from the start of the programme. It’s not about the difficulty or relative ease of the exams – the graft wins either way.”
Elsewhere, Rachel has been having a little fun online with a new game – rude place names.
She tweeted at the weekend: “Rude anagram place names is a new game I’m totally up for playing!”
One user shared a picture of the sign which read: “Welcome to fingringhoe.”
Rachel responded to the picture: “Rude place name anagrams round 2.”
Another uploaded a snap of a road sign which read: “Sarehole rd,” while a third anagram said: “Newark.”
Countdown airs on Channel 4 weekdays at 2.10pm.
