in gseb hsc board exam I used blue pen instead of black pen in omr so what happen now!

Amit Banarjee 12th Mar, 2020

Hello !

Mostly black ball pen is used to fill OMR sheet. But if you can use blue ball pen also, no issue. First read the instructions given in question paper carefully before filling omr sheet. Black ball point pen gives more contrast and more area is filled faster. And OMR is all related to filling circles. That's why black ball point pen is preferred. But if you have used blue ball point pen, its certainly no issue and you don't have to worry about anything.

Best of Luck !


I would like to appear for GSEB HSC practical exam in march 2020 and remaining subjects in July 2020. Can I get only one mark sheet for both exam?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 23rd Mar, 2020


Your part is to appear the exam. How you will receive mark sheet and in what number depends on board. They are the sole person who decide how to make mark sheet which will be easy use for students.

so don't worry about that part. Read , practice regularly so that you perform well this time.

Hope it helps!


I will pass 12 hsc gseb exam with 70% . can I give second attempt next year?

Koyel Bagchi 8th Feb, 2020


To give amy exam there is no boundary about your present score.

But if you have the chances with this score then you must utilize it.

If you think you have the confidence to gain better in next attempt only then you can go for it.

Hope for the best.
