Everything hangs in the balance on results day. The last two years of your life, be it at sixth form or on a college course, have come down to this dooms day, and within the next 24 hours, you’ll be sifted on whether you’ve made the grade or not. Have you got the grades you wanted to cut the mustard for the UK’s top courses? Or are you going to be rubbing shoulders with the ones who didn’t quite get what they wanted? Well, either way, it’s more than likely you’ll be out on the town on a mad one in true student style.

Seeing as the majority of you will be hitting the bottle, here at the SPG we thought it would be necessary that you needed some music to pre-drink to. So, if you’re full of euphoria and just want to celebrate, or you’re just not feeing ecstatic about your results, we have a perfect playlist for you. Here are the two A-Level results playlists you should be shuffling through, failure or success…
