Board Exams 2019: What to do if you forget your hall ticket or worse, lose it
What if there is a mistake on your admit card? Submit a written application to the Board Office and get proper receipt against the application
What do you do if something goes wrong? In the hustle and bustle of exam prep, there is an increased chance of making mistakes, for example, you might forget your hall ticket or worse, lose it. Don't worry, we're here with some tips and suggestions to help you tackle such a problem.
So, what do you do if you lose your hall ticket?
Well, the first thing you can do is go to your school and submit an application for a duplicate hall ticket. They will give you a duplicate and will inform the centre subsequently.
Just before the exam, you suddenly remember that you've forgotten your hall ticket at home. What then?
Remember to keep a photocopy of your hall ticket with you at all times to avoid this kind of mishap. Carry the photocopy along with the original every time you take an exam. So, if you forget the original, you can show the photocopy of your hall ticket and you will be allowed to write the exam. Before leaving the exam centre, you will have to give it in writing that you will bring the original hall ticket for the next exam.
What if you end up at the wrong centre?
This situation is highly unlikely unless you are really confused or haven't gone through your hall ticket clearly. If you end up at a different centre and you realise it too late, don’t panic. Speak to the authorities or the supervisor and if they find that your problem is genuine, they will allow you to write the exam.
What if you fall sick just before the exam?
While there is no provision for a student suffering from an illness to take the exam later. The school and examination centre can make necessary arrangements so that the student is able to give the exam. For example, if the student is suffering from chicken pox, the student is allowed to take the examination in a room different from the allotted room in the centre.
What if there is a mistake on your admit card?
Submit a written application to the Board Office and get proper receipt against the application. Your guardian/parents must handle this part. Carry other records to the exam hall to prove your identity and correct name. Write your roll number properly.
