AS A-level grades rolled in yesterday with the worst results in four years Magaluf was awash with school leavers partying the pain away.
Teens hit Majorca's party mecca last night determined to celebrate and commiserate their exams in equal measure till the sun came up.
Pupils yesterday received their much-awaited A-level results – the worst batch in four years and were scrambling to grab leftover university places after missing out on their top choices.
Marks returned to 2019 levels after pandemic-era teacher assessments were ditched and exam boards sought to tackle grade inflation.
However, panic or despair was not seen on the bustling streets of Magaluf as young Brits readily downed blue-coloured drinks, debated hasty tattoos, and shouted football chants.
The party town has scrubbed up in recent years after a crackdown on troublemaker tourists with the loss of happy hours deals, pub crawls, and booze cruises – but good-natured debauchery still filled its streets last night.

Music pounded, revellers walked through piles of litter and the air stunk of kebab meat and sweat.
Jack, James, Nathan, and Frank, all 18 from Romford, Essex, were rewarding themselves with a night on Spain's most ill-famed party strip after finishing school.
Fresh off the plane and all shouting over one another, they told The Sun that there was nowhere they would rather be to celebrate.
"We're here for the party, it's one of our birthdays," said Nathan.

"There's no better place to be than here in Magaluf."
His mate Jack chimed in: "We're in Maga for five nights, there's more than 10 clubs, we're going to be busy."
"It's our first time being here, but it cannot be going downhill, it's a great place for lads and for our age as it’s cheap," he added.
Staring out at the sea of half-dressed, plenty-burnt young teens, Frank said: "You cannot beat the Brits, you hate us ’cause you ain't us. Brits add spice to the equation.”
Meanwhile, dressed in bikinis and still soaking from a pool party, Shannon Browne and her friends were deciding on the best bar to celebrate their A-level success.
The 18-year-old from Southport couldn’t believe she got into her first choice university, Manchester Metropolitan. “I have partied all day and will party all night,” she said.
"And, I've loved it so much, I'll be staying here to finish the season as a club promoter."
Cousins Luca and Darcy, both 18, were holidaying with their family elsewhere in Majorca when they opened their A-level results email.
Darcy admitted his grades were “not exactly good” and asked his dad to drive them into Magaluf so they could “drink the pain away,” he told The Sun.
