LAD Who Finished Uni Assignment While On A Night Out Has Got His Mark Back

LAD Who Finished Uni Assignment While On A Night Out Has Got His Mark Back

You've probably seen the viral video of the student rushing to finish his uni assignment while in a nightclub. Well, he's just received his final grade and if you were thinking he would probably have fucked it, then you're wrong, because he (somehow) got a first.

Yep, he got a first while finishing essays pissed. Fair play, I guess.

Lawrence Kemp, 21, has just finished his second year at the University of Gloucestershire, where he studies business management.

He was filmed on Snapchat by his mates while writing and editing a 2,000-word essay, through pre-drinks and out into a club, where he was still working away despite the strobe lighting, thumping music and the temptation of alcohol, of course. He's not really resisting the temptation, either, as he can be seen with a drink in his hand for most of the video.

His pals, Eddy Hedley and Danny Cotter, shared the footage on Facebook and it has since gone viral, with thousands of students sharing the clip. Lawrence has become a bit of inspiration.

Personally, I can't help but be really impressed by this. I couldn't even work at the university library when I was a student, because I thought it was too loud and this LAD is in a club.

The video is a bit like a student version of an episode of 24, with the time splashed across and then...finally, at 23.59, 'He's only gone and done it'.

I think he should add this to his 'skills' section on LinkedIn, to be honest. Multi-tasking, working well under pressure, always sticks to deadlines...these are all skills employers want.

Lawrence, who got 81 percent for the year, said: "To be perfectly honest, I had started a few days prior, but I left my last 750 words and editing to last minute. I fully intended on going out as I hadn't been out in a while, but the assignment took longer than I thought.

"So, I was reluctant to join my mates until I finished, but I knew I was capable of editing work and enjoying the night."

Fair enough, mate, can't fault you really, can we?
