Write neatly and legibly. Don’t overwrite. If there is any mistake just strike only once and write the correct one. Sometimes even if you write correctly and the answer sheet is clumsy you will lose marks as the examiner will not understand and he will not have so much patience to read.
Revise the answer sheet before giving the paper.
