The university showed him he was not the cleverest, not by a long chalk.
not by a long chalk = not by any means = not at all = 絕不；一點也不
如果只是 by a long chalk
英文定義：by a long way; by many degrees 很；非常
英語片語 not by a long chalk 討論簡單節錄：
This mainly British expression means “not by any means”, “not at all” and often turns up in conventional expressions such as they weren’t beaten yet, not by a long chalk.
