Students were provided with an OMR sheet along with the answer booklet to attempt the objective questions. The evaluation of the OMR sheets were to be done along with the subjective answers at the evaluation centres. There were reports that many students had made mistakes in filling details in the OMR sheet with a lot of students filling in details on the OMR sheet at the space which was reserved for the examiner.
