Marking Answers on TANCET 2021 MBA Answer Sheet

Since candidates are required to mark their answers on an OMR sheet, it is important to understand how to mark their answers on the OMR sheet. Candidates should be careful while marking their answers and doing this in the wrong way can result in an easily-avoidable penalty and would be just a careless mistake to make. Check the details below.

  • The answer sheet will contain small open boxes corresponding to every answer option for every question in the exam.

  • Candidates must shade these boxes using a black ballpoint pen only to mark their answers. If a pencil is used to mark an answer, it will not be evaluated.

  • Candidates must shade the complete box and ensure that the number given inside the box completely disappears when marking answers.

  • Improper or light shading may be missed while scanning the answer sheet resulting in the wrong evaluation of the answer.

  • Only one answer option must be shaded or filled by the candidate per question. Multiple shading will be considered as a wrong answer and 1/3 marks will be deducted for the same.

  • Candidates must special care while handling the answer sheet as even a small stray mark from the pen can result in the wrong evaluation of their answer.

Be very careful when marking your answers and make sure your pen does not leave any stray marks anywhere on the answer sheet. Not being careful may result in your losing out on a mark or two or worse, in attracting negative marking.

This was all about the TANCET 2021 MBA Exam Pattern including the marking scheme, section-wise details, how to handle the answer sheet etc. If you still have any doubts, you can post them on the CollegeDekho QnA Zone.
