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 shit 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.”
