Mr. Saueracker told his physics class that phones were totally banned for the duration of the midterm — even if just for listening to music.
Wyatt Prutch (who goes by @TheItalianPacca on Twitter) found a loophole in the rules, though, and spent the exam period listening to music on a turntable instead.
As pointed out by his teacher, the innovative student opted for some Kanye West to soundtrack his exam writing.
Saueracker later returned to Twitter to clarify that Prutch did, in fact, ace his midterm — despite listing to College Dropout while writing it.

Students are taking their Physics Midterm exam today. I said no cell phones, not even for music since they could be used to cheat.— Eric Saueracker (@esaueracker) April 11, 2018
This student brought in a record player and is bumping Kanye in his headphones right now... pic.twitter.com/p57iMIal7D
