Type of Pencil for Paper 1

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I've got my Biology exam in a couple of days and was just wondering does anybody know what shade of pencil we have to use for paper 1?

Thanks :P

Any sort of pencil I expect. You can be pretty safe with anything on the B side of HB (and very safe with an HB.. can't go wrong with the ultimate standard pencil!!) -- but I did mine with a 2H pencil and provided you make strong enough marks for it to be computer-read (which you can test easily on a piece of paper just looking at it) that's all that's required.

They do 'theoratically' specify a type of pencil, but seriously, no one really follows that. I did some of mine with a lead mecanical pencil like the 'cushi' one.

the ones that are unnecessarily (?) picky with pencils are the SATs.

I never understood the difference between a 2H/HB and a mechanical pencil that has HB lead

can anybody tell me??
