    I've always used black gel-like pens for exams, never had any problems, but recently I've started using a second pen the same type but blue, helps for cancelling/substituting and essentially highlighting parts of equations/results i'm going to need later on in the question, so would that be acceptable in an exam?or would they get suspicious that i'm randomly changing between a bright blue pen and black? input would be great.

    As long as you don't write your answers with the blue pen, I think its fine to use it elsewhere. The reason they tell you to use black is because all of the exam papers get scanned in before they're sent to examiners and blue ink doesn't usually show up very well.
