AN A-Level student is celebrating getting the grades to go to a low-level university and do a course that will mean he can stay in bed most days.
Stephen Malley, 18, got one C and two Ds, winning him a not-very-prized place at Bedfordshire University in September to study Leisure and Tourism.
Malley said: “It’s fantastic to know I’ve got into somewhere not too demanding. I feel like all the hard work I didn’t do has really paid off.
“My parents have saved for the last 15 years for me to go to university but as far as I can tell they just knobbed around so why can’t I?
“Just because education is expensive now shouldn’t take away my right to play computer games, get into sh*t bands and not wash my socks.
“Also university is basically a three-year course on planning a really nice gap year afterwards to relax from all the intensive relaxing.”
Malley’s father Iain said: “Stephen thinks we saved for his university fees so that he’ll have a bright future, but it’s actually a fund to get rid of him in a socially acceptable way.”
