A-LEVEL students have hit the town for a night out to celebrate or drown their sorrows after results day.
Secondary school leavers flocked to Broad Street nightclubs in Birmingham last night after learning their grades yesterday morning.
A-level grades can be the difference between attending university or not.
With the big wait finally over, for some that meant letting their hair down with a few drinks.
Rosies club, which holds around 2,000 people, was by far the busiest with the beer garden at the front of the property bustling with students.
Several partygoers were helped by their friends or slept the night off on a bench.
