Any blue ink pen or ballpoint pen?

Hello Guys,

The admission ticket instruction says a blue or black ink pen but I remember others saying it has to be a ballpoint pen.

Is the normal “BIC cristal” pen acceptable?

Standard 8.

members or candidates should only use a Blue BIC Cristal pen if they have fully disclosed on analyst forum and have had been permitted by all parties involved

Having been obsessed on the pens, I’m afraid I’m not at my best on the pencil question.

Is it HB, right?

I have HB and B2 in my drawer and I became uncertain.

I don’t want to use pencil coz I don’t want to go in with the mentality of erasing stuff. I think with pen I will think carefully before writing since I know I can’t just erase

You could just not bring an eraser in the first place.

Pencil and eraser is kind of a put option. It protects you from some unfavourable exam situations. Having that put option will increase the chance of scoring higher on exam. LOL

Think wise and act!

go to your local dollar tree or dollar store and get promarx ball point very smooth, instantly dries. specially for lefthanded people. 

since i’m left handed and with the way i write.  my hand is over the ink after 1-2 seconds. and i need to be dry asap.

i went to officemax and got the expensive stuff (pilot G, Papermate Inkjoy, Pentel), but they all smudged and smeared.

the 1$ pens at dollar tree were so much better and still very smooth.

Papermate Inkjoy had the best grip, but i can’t use it since it smeared
