Tens of thousands of final-year students are receiving their Leaving Certificate results today.
For many it is the most stressful day of their school career, as they have been told for the past five years that this piece of paper with a number on it will affect the rest of their lives.
As happens every year on this fateful day, people who have survived the Leaving Cert and subsequent results are giving support to those who are anxiously waiting to hear the news.
But-- as again always happens-- many more people are just being sarky.
Here are some of the best "advice" tweets for this year's Leaving Cert students.
It's good to stay positive.
Don’t worry about your Leaving Cert results. In two years time you’ll be eating your parents and waiting out a nuclear winter after Boris Johnson accidentally launches trident warheads at the Falklands while high on bath salts and pork scratchings.

If you're disappointed with your results you might get to go on a great adventure.
If you’re getting your leaving cert results today dont fret.I once got my LC results too.I was disappointed. But later that day,I met a golden retriever who could communicate through blinking and he lead me to a bounty of ancient treasure that was buried in a Protestant graveyard

In fact, if you get bad results you're probably MORE likely to be successful. Just look at this guy.
I mitched every Leaving Cert exam and went down the park with a flagon of Linden Village, twenty Sweet Afton and a bag of chips from Riozzi's, but now I'm chairman of HSBC, I invented Google and I own a solid gold yacht. Everything happens for a reason. #LeavingCert2019

This support which is more depressing than anything else.
To everyone worrying about their leaving cert results don't worry, your future isn't going to be defined over a piece of paper, it's all based on how rich your parents are #LeavingCert #LeavingCert2019

The LC is just part of the circle of life.
I got 8 points in my #LeavingCert. Then my uncle blamed the death of my father on me and I fled. He became head of the pride. I spent years in exile. But I turned things around and now, after defeating him and finding true love, I'm King of Pride Rock. #LeavingCert2019

Even A-List celebrities had to go through the horror of the Leaving.

We all love a bitta craic, but if you're a Leaving student who's worried or disappointed, don't mind these lads.
"The results don't define you"is only a cliché because it's true.
You've got this.
