No Erasure Policy? No Problem, Student Shows the Wittiest Style for No Erasure Policy on his Exam

Remember the days when our parents won’t allow us to go out at night? We tend to think of ways to make them agree. The creative it is the higher chance of being granted.

But one student apparently got creative in answering his exams. He impressed his teacher to the extent of making him post what he did online.



Facebook user Ariel Yorpo Ebio, who teaches at Goldenstate College Gensan posted a photo of what his student did to follow the rules yet at the same time was able to walk around it.

You will surely feel as impressed as the teacher was. His instructions were clear, “Erasures means wrong.”

Imagine what the student felt when he answered his paper and realized that his answer was incorrect. Any indication of an erasure, whether you slash it, edit it, or place open and close parenthesis would show that your answer has tampered.

Teachers commonly use this policy to ensure that the students will think before they answer their papers. It is a way to find out if the student knew the correct answer right after reading the question. Also, a paper with tons if erasure looks dirty and can be confusing at times.



This student apparently answered his paper in what he believed to be the correct letter of answer for the test question. He realized too late that his answers were wrong so instead of erasing them, he wrote a sentence that leads to his final answer.

4. Akong answer kay C

9. Akong answer kay B

14. Bahala na basta C

It is obvious that on number 4, his first answer was “A”, but he added a sentence starting with ‘A’ to support his final answer which was, ‘C’. It was so funny that Mr. Ebio posted it on his Facebook page.

Although it was unclear if he considered the student’s style to be correct, we still think that it was a brilliant try.



As a teacher, they are aware that the student’s ability to learn is different from another student. And one’s creative learning is also different from the other. Kudos to the student for finding a way to correct his previous answers.
