On the first day of the exam, candidates received the OMR sheets with pre-entered details such as the name, hall ticket number, and version code of the question paper. Apparently, the idea behind prefilled details was to eliminate the possibility of errors. In wake of this change, the duration of 15 minutes for filling up the details before the commencement of the exam was reduced to 10.

Students welcomed the move as it reduced the stress of filling the correct details in the OMR sheet, and it meant that aspirants could focus just answering the question paper.
