Questions related to CA Foundation Exam
I made a mistake in shading the buble of OMR sheet in question booklet no. in ca foundation exam economics and then rectified it with the whitner while the no. in boxes is correctly written will it couse any problem ? P.S. i had rectified with whitner and also no. in boxes is properly written
Technically use of the Whitener in the OMR sheets can be problematic as many times the OMR machines can't interpret the details. Now as you have number written in it, then your copy is less likely to face any problem as it would be forwarded to manual checking. So don't worry and technically your copy will not be cancelled or have to face any problem.
