Sir, I have a little doubt.. I have some Banking Exams. I used to first tick mark the correct answers on the question booklet and then oval it on the OMR sheet at the end of the exams.. But someone told me that ticking correct answers on the Booklet will cancel the answer or will reveal zero even if the answer is correct, He even told me it maked you diqualify. But according to me it is clearly mentioned that we can mark any thing in the question booklet.. Please tell me , does this will make disqualifiaction ???

As far as Ashfaque's comment is concerned ticking answers in the question paper never lead to disqualification ..i can assure you on that matter ..I have consulted with HR people of reputed bank ...and For Mudit disqualification in written test will be counted as an attempt..good luck

Sir im Karthik.. n i have a doubt regarding the eligibility fr SB PO's..
I scored 80% in 10th and 94% in Intermediate n 59% in Graduation.
I was to complete my B.Tech in the year 2010 but due to my backlogs I completed it in 2011.
And ive cleared the exams but will get the main marks memo by june end..
So am i eligible to apply for SB PO's now or later?
