Clarity regarding use of PEN or PENCIL on OMR sheet for May-June19 CA Exams

As you are aware that ICAI has been implemented objective type exams for 30 marks for some papers of CA Final and CA Inter from May-June 19 exams.

Students are having lots of confusions regarding the use of PEN or PENCIL on OMR sheets which is given to students for answering objective type questions

News has been reported from many examination centers that even teachers presented there in exam hall were not even sure or confused regarding the use of PEN or PENCIL which cost students time and concentration to perform their best in exam

so if you are confused then, let me tell you that your confusion is going to be completely solved be reading this post

It's simply very clearly written in admit card instructions regarding sheet

wherever circles need to be darken, only pencil is to be used,
wherever something is to be written, only use black ball point pen

so for roll number/paper no. / paper code question booklet serial no. / Question booklet set no./ Level of Exam / Stream, 
when u write roll number in digits in the box, use PEN
when darkening circles under them, use PENCIL

when signing on OMR, use PEN

when answering questions, use PENCIL

This is final and the correct interpretation of instructions given in admit card by ICAI itself
So if you have any further query regarding this, you may write it under comment box below

All the best for your exams
