    Hi,

    When invigilators say you are not allowed to use gel pens in exams, do they mean the coloured, sparkly ones or all gel pens in general?

    The scanner can pick it up. If it can't, they simply give the physical paper to an examiner to mark it. It's not a problem

    Shouldn't be much of a problem, but as is said above, the scanners can't pick it up as well as black biro. Just use black biro in the future and there wont be a problem!
