The exam roll no. is perhaps the most important piece of information a candidate must fill, so the evaluation committee knows who the answer sheet belongs to. This becomes more important when it comes to OMR sheet. Besides entering the roll no. in written text form, the candidates are also supposed to fill their roll numbers in the OMR format too, i.e. by marking the right bubbles corresponding to the digit options provided in matrix type OMR block format.
It is imperative for every student to write their roll number on the answer sheet properly and carefully before attempting to solve the questions. Here are some essential tips on filling the exam roll no. on an OMR sheet.
Refer to your hall-ticket and write your roll no. with a pen or pencil, as instructed, in the space provided. Then shade the corresponding bubbles lightly using a pencil. Cross-check whether you have filled correctly and then darken the bubbles using pen or pencil, as instructed.
Never start filling the answers before you have properly filled your details. Remember that your roll number is the only way by which the evaluators can identify the candidate who has filled the sheet, and even a minor mistake can spoil all your efforts and render your answer sheet unfit for evaluation and merit list generation.
If you are provided more bubbles than the actual number of digits in your roll no, start filling them from the unit measure, then moving onto tens and hundreds. You don’t have to worry about the extra bubble which you have left vacant, as the the OMR reader software will ignore it.
In rare cases you may be provided OMR sheets with lesser number of bubbles than the number of digits in the roll no. If such a situation may arise, you may need to ignore the first one or two digits of the roll no. But remember to confirm this with the examiner before doing this. It may be a mistake in printing your sheet and simply replacing the OMR sheet can solve the problem.
Take extra care while filling your roll number, to avoid chances of rejections during evaluations. Always start filling the answer bubbles only after you have entered your roll number.
