World's News # Results day: Seven celebrities who didn't study - but still made it

''It can be easy to feel like your entire life depends on what lies in that brown envelope, but these people are proof you can be successful without getting straight A's or a first-class degree.''
Here's a look at some examples.
Jeremy Clarkson in 2014: If your A-level results aren't joyous take comfort from the fact I got a C and two Us. And I have a Mercedes Benz.
In 2015: If your A-level results aren't great, be cheered by the fact that I got a C and two Us. And I'm currently sitting in a villa in St Tropez.

In 2016: If your A-level results are disappointing, don't worry. I got a C and two Us, and I'm currently on a superyacht in the Med.

In 2017: If you didn't get the right A-level results, don't worry. I got a C and 2 Us, and my chef is preparing truffles for breakfast.

You get the idea.
Jo Malone : "I don't have a single qualification" - and she didn't need one! Jo Malone created a hugely successful fragrance company by teaching herself how to make cosmetics.
Russell Brand : who doesn't have an A-level to his name, has had a successful and colourful career. He has written books, sold out stand-up shows across the world, married (and divorced) a pop star, and has generally been very successful. With the odd controversy here and there.
Richard Branson : Probably the most famous case of "I left school at 16", Richard Branson's career speaks for itself.
Jon Snow : The journalist describes himself as a "man of limited intellect". The broadcaster reportedly only got one A-level and says "there is life after" exam results day.
Alan Sugar : Lord Sugar left school at 16 and started selling car parts. He now spends his time firing aspiring business people on The Apprentice.
Chris Evans : The TV and radio personality left school at 16. He ended up setting up his own production company and is now one of the highest-paid presenters at the BBC.
