    Hi, a bit of a weird question.. exam regulations state blue/black ink. has anyone used a felt-tip style pen for exams?
    I find rollerball pen makes my writing messy and tiring, ink pen - too straining. thin felt tip ends are fine with me, but are they allowed? I'd prefer to use them, just don't want my paper to be annulled because it's not "regulation".

    I haven't personally done it but a friend used a non-rollerball pen for midsessionals and all of his were marked fine. They mark the papers by hand at the mathematics department, not sure elsewhere.

    Felt-tip pens are fine but they recommend crayons
