Does the Essex star now have one more GCSE on his CV?
Joey Essex has never claimed to be a genius.
10 years ago when he took his GCSE's he didn't exactly end up with the grades to get into Oxford or Cambridge!
Reports have even claimed that Joey left school aged 16 with a U in Drama, a C in art and a D in Wood Tech.
But he recently set out to change that and jumped back into the classroom to take another GCSE.
General Studies was the subject and he spent eight weeks preparing for his exam.
And it appears it was all worth it as he revealed last night that he gained a D grade!
Before the reult was announced, Joey admitted, "I still don't really know what GCSE stands for."
Whilst Joey was over the moon with his D grade, some people were left unsure exactly how to react.

I'm tad bit confused by 'if Joey Essex can achieve a D at GCSE you can do anything you put your mind too', I wouldn't go that far— Callum (@KidCalledCal) August 26, 2016
So how do you feel about Joey gaining his D grade?
You could see how happy he was when he opened those results and that's enough to warm anyone's heart, right?
Well we're proud of you anyway Joey - good work lad!
