A lot of students use music to help them study or focus on their work. It’s a way to block out the sound around you and get down to business on whatever the task at hand is. But what do you do when your teacher bans you from bringing a cell phone to the classroom, and you want to listen to Kanye West? You bring in a record player, duh!
That’s exactly what a student in Washington did to get around his teacher’s cell phone ban during their physics midterm exam. In a tweet, which has now gone viral, Eric Saueracker, the physics professor, shared a picture of his very clever student.
Students are taking their Physics Midterm exam today. I said no cell phones, not even for music since they could be used to cheat.
This student brought in a record player and is bumping Kanye in his headphones right now… pic.twitter.com/p57iMIal7D

Nah you gotta make a recording of all your notes and have it made into vinyl, then just slap that college dropout sticker in the middle. Easy A. https://t.co/M1xDza4Peh

As for how the test went for the kid? Apparently listening to Kayne worked for him.
As a follow up:
@TheItalianPacca did ace the test whilst listening to college dropout…
