pens and white out

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I just have some questions about the use of pens/ white out for ib exams.

Is it true that we have to use pens for exams? And is it true that white out is not allowed at all? I do Japanese B and writing a Japanese essay in pen is very difficult...

If I recall correctly my IB coordinator supplied anything we were allowed to use during tests, and white out was not present. This was for the SL History exam last year however, I've also heard from my math teacher that pen is required for the math exam, so I'm assuming yes, pens with no whiteout, but don't quote me.

The school should supply scratch paper (you mean the draft paper yeah?).

As far as I know, pencils are only allowed for MCQ and diagrams. You can't answer questions with a pencil.

Thank you everyone for your answers=)

@Mahuta: what about graphs in maths?

They're considered 'diagrams' so it's cool to do them in pencil.

As far as I know, they will only mark anything written in pen. Pencils can only be used for shading in MCQ, for diagrams and graphs in the other papers. Any working in pencil would not be marked, which means you can just scratch on the exam paper with pencil :P

White outs are not allowed. They would be glad if you can just cross it out, instead.
