While the UK’s year 11 students spend each June sweating over exam papers, the lucky Love Island stars spend it sweating by the pool.
In cut-out swimsuits and skin tight swimming trucks. Naturally.
But once upon a time the villa mates also had to endure the future-defining exams – with some enjoying more success than others.
Indeed, some are packing some serious intellect behind their reality TV-honed bodies, while others were keen to crack on with just about anything other than their studies.
So in honour of 2019’s GCSE results day, here’s a look at how your favourite Islanders did…
He was the class clown of 2017, but it turns out Chris Hughes is actually a bit of a brainbox.
He’s got 14 GCSEs – including three A*s and eight As – and worked for a legal firm before entering the ITV2 show.
Chris’ sidekick Kem left school without any GCSEs after he was struck down with crippling anxiety.
“Anxiety can be a dark path if you don’t handle it well,” he told The Sunday Times Style magazine.
“I’ve seen it first hand. I was taken out of school when I was 13, in year nine.
“People don’t know I didn’t finish school, that I was a different person to how I am now. I basically had therapy seven days a week for, like, three years.”
She was cast as the intellectual one of the 2017 villa, and eventually hooked up with fellow deep thinker, Jamie Jewitt.
And Camilla is certainly a smarty pants, having scored nine A* GCSEs as well as the As at A-Level and a First class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science.
Series two star Scott Thomas earned himself four A*s and five As before going into the villa – much to the pride of his then girlfriend Kady McDermott .
Reassuring high school kids in 2016, he tweeted, “Good luck with ur GCSE’s peeps! I got 4 A* 5 A’s and ended up throwing parties for a living and on Love Island! Who would have thought ey?”
Series five runner-up Tommy dropped out of school when he was in year nine and left without a single qualification to his name.
And the poor guy got himself all confused when he asked if he should go ‘left or right’ to London after leaving the villa – forgetting he was in another country.
“Oh s*** you have to get a plane innit? Jesus Christ I am so thick. I’m so thick it’s untrue,” he laughed.
The social media influencer scored big with her GCSEs, earning an A in English and an A* in sociology before ditching college to launch her online career.
Liverpudlian Hayley claimed not to know what Brexit or earlobes were when she appeared in series four.
But it turns out that she’s actually got loads of qualifications and got good enough grades to study Childhood and Youth Studies at Liverpool Hope University.
“She’s definitely not that stupid. I can’t believe no one else has said anything,” a source told The Sun.
“She did really well in her A Levels and GCSEs. She managed to get the grades to do that course, but she dropped out to pursue an acting career.”
