OMR Sheets need to be handled carefully and preserved from any damage, so as to be scanned and processed accurately. It is imperative to ensure that the OMR sheets are not torn. Some examinations provide OMR sheets which need to be detached from the other sheets before submission. Following are some important precautions to be taken while tearing the OMR sheets:
Some OMR answer sheets or forms come with attacked acknowledgement forms that need to be torn across the perforated cutting line provided.
If the answer sheet must be detached from the question paper booklet, detach it across the perforated line only.
While printing the sheets, ensure that the perforated lines are printed properly, to prevent accidental tearing along the edges.
Although the OMR software can handle minor damages or tears by the edges of the OMR sheets, the sheets need to be handled with care, in order to facilitate accurate processing.
