Daniel Barron-Exall emailed his personal tutor Ann Cass promising her that his attendance would improve, only to discover that his friends were behind the prank. 

On Twitter, Daniel posted the email trail captioning it 'pulling my hair out fully stressin out': 

The email read:

I have just had a call from NTU asking to confirm my withdrawal from the course. I have received no email but my attendance is extremely disapointing however I am getting the results from each exam and coursework I have taken. 

I will never ever scan the barcode for a lecture as I believed my attendance does not matter as long as I stay on top of things for me personally.

Due to this I am going to make sure I attend everything and try my hardest to scan the barcodes. 

This phonecall has really stressed me out.

He later sent an email of apology after finding out that his friends were behind the prank calls.

He promised to stay on top of his work and improve his attendance. 

The post has garnered over 30,000 likes, Daniel was asked to appear on Capital FM for an interview.

He used his fame to prank his friend into believing that Good Morning Britain wanted to speak to her.
