I wouldn't have thought you'd be able to set a make-up test that is immeasurably harder than the other one...although I guess he can do whatever he wants really.
Had a situation with a Social Psych lecturer years ago who was similarly picky with the answers to the test. More than 50% of us failed the mid-semester, and he basically said it was because we were stupid. I got 46/100 and walked out of the test thinking I'd done really well. It came down to us not explaining something exactly the way he wanted us to, which I thought was strange considering we were studying psychology. In short, bloke was a complete and utter ****.
Inevitably lecturers panic when they see half the class failing though, so the rest of the course was a breeze relatively speaking.
