Can we use other coloured pens apart from blue ?

edited November 2013 in Miscellaneous
Hi Everybody,

I have a few silly doubts regarding answer writing in main examination :

1. Can we use other colour pens also apart from blue to write something in between ?
2. Can we underline some points using black pen ?

Thanks in advance.
To be, or not to be, that is the question...

  • Yes u can underline but its better to do with pencil.

    However u will not get time to underline until it is well planned
  • Thanks @dp81

    Probably first timers like me who don't have a lot to write may get some time :P

  • and what about other colour pens ?

  • i dont knw abt color pens...but i dont see any harms either if it is not specify in instruction.

    If instruction says "blue/black" pen only then no color. If nothing specified then u can tak benefit of doubt. But i would say use only one pen, as transition from one pen to another will consuming time and as time progress u will also not be interested in making things colorful and our handwriting also spoils due to speedy writing
  • hmmm... okk :)

    Thanks again :)

    Answers to your queries are as below:
    1. Yes, you may use BLACK ink too. Many candidates write the whole paper with it.
    2. Yes.

    PS: Do not write in RED/ GREEN ink.

  • Thanks @khajoor . That was helpful. I'll keep that in mind :)
