Gordon Ramsay offers A-Level students free pizza on results day

Gordon Ramsay has promised A-Level students free pizza from his Street Pizza restaurant chain for results day.

The chef took to Instagram to congratulate everyone who will be receiving their exam results, and regardless of what grades they will get, he wants to reward them for all of their hard work.

‘I could only ever have dreamt of getting an A Level so I want to say congratulations,’ he said in a video filmed from his garden.

‘It has been one of the toughest, most awkward years so whatever you get tomorrow, take it as a positive. No one is going to judge you on what you get tomorrow.’

Alongside the video, he wrote: ‘Students… Big day tomorrow A Level #ResultsDay !! If you’re picking up your results tomorrow head down to @gordonramsaystreetpizza for bottomless pizza on us!’

Street Pizza has two branches in London, which are both already taking part in the government’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme, which is running throughout August.

Fans in the comments were overwhelmed by Gordon’s generosity, with one writing: ‘You’re a good man Gordon!’

Another added: ‘Such a lovely thing to do x.’

It was previously reported that almost 40% of A-Level grades were set to be downgraded in England.

This year’s examinations were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with students’ final marks instead decided by predicted results set by teachers, combined with coursework assignments and mock exam results.

But 39% of marks will be adjusted by exam regulator Ofqual before being given out, according to a report by The Guardian.

Almost 300,000 of more than 750,000 A-Level results will be lower than what teachers had submitted as a result of the regulator’s ‘statistical model’.

The government has since announced that students in England will be allowed to use mock exam results to apply for jobs and university if they are unhappy with the grades they receive.
