  8. If your photo is not clear on the Admit Card, carry 4 to 6 additional passport size photos with you. This photo should be the same as it appears on Admit Card along with an additional Photo ID Card.

We strongly recommend that those appearing for the exam take a printout of admit card if you haven’t already and put everything you will be taking to the Exam Centre in your bag to avoid any last-minute panic. Double Check that your Black Ball Pen is working and your admit card along with your Photo ID is on the bag
