Attending Oxford is considered by many as a one-way ticket to success. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case for Faiz Siddiqui who is now suing the university for not achieving a first-class degree, bringing whole new levels to shirking responsibility.
The Times reports that Siddiqui studied 'Modern History' and claims that the "appallingly bad" teaching was responsible for his poor results, and that he would have had a career as an international commercial lawyer if he'd achieved a 1st class degree.
Siddiqui graduated 16 years ago and is only now choosing to pursue the case in light of the fact he has struggled to hold down a job for long periods of time, as he suffers from both insomnia and depression.
He claims that during his final year four out of seven staff teaching the 'Indian Imperial History' course were on sabbatical leave, leading to a shortage of tutors and "negligent" teaching.
Oxford has claimed the case is baseless and revealed he had already had special consideration due to suffering from hay fever.
So if you didn't cruise your physics GCSE and still haven't made it as an astronaut, there might still be time to blame it on someone else.
