Dalrymple is appalled to read an English university professor’s 5 top tips for study, and offers his own in the Salisbury Review:

3. Agree with everything any superior says.
4. Keep a supply of sick notes in case of exam anxiety.
5. Always write sentences whose negation conveys no different meaning.
