Autonomous University of Durango (AUD) professor Alexis Ayala, who teaches neuroanatomy classes in the first year of a general medical degree, shared a video on his TikTok account showing he posted answers to the final exam. Same test and no student detected.
“When on a single test you give your students the answer and none of them realize it,” Alexis wrote in the recording and showed the exams, which were multiple-choice and open-ended questions from her students. It is seen in them that, on the last page, which contained the ‘rescue questions’, he pasted a handkerchief next to the image of a crying man on which he had written “Take it if you need it”.
Then the teacher showed that inside that paper was a printout with 13 answers and with the message: “Curiosity didn’t always kill the cat, sometimes it found the answer to its doubts”.
The ‘rescue questions’ put up by Alexis Ayala were also funny and simple as are such things as: “What does it take to get four people wet with an umbrella”, “Everyone knows him as Panchito, why?” and “Who is this Pokémon?” With a shade of Chikorita.

The teacher reported that the value of the test was 30% because it did not seem fair that those who did not try the whole cycle got a good grade with one test, so the other 70% was obtained on average from their three partial exams. …
Regarding the test, he indicated: “Yes, it is true that I asked multiple choice questions, of which 13 and 37 were open, with a total of 50 questions. As you see, out of 13 I answered them wrapped in a napkin, but unfortunately for my students, none of them paid attention, I also gave them five rescue questions, of which I answered only one Got it right So getting a good grade was not as easy as it seemed.”
