The Admit Cards for the first slot, that is September 17, will also be released on September 13. All the admit cards will be released 4 days before the exam. The board has reportedly taken this step, so that it has to handle the lesser number of visitors per day, rather than lakhs at once.
What one needs to carry to the exam hall:
The candidates will have to carry their hall tickets or admit cards, to the exam hall, along with official ID proof. Photocopies of the admit card will not be taken into consideration. Among ID proofs, one needs to carry either one of these: Voter card, aadhaar card, e-aadhaar card, PAN card, Passport, or Driving license. Government school, college, university and employer’s ID cards will also be taken into consideration.
If a candidate is facing problem with logging in:
If any candidate faces problem while logging in to download the admit card or the mock test link, that might be because of the huge traffic that the official website is getting.
So one might try logging in during the off hours like the middle of the night.
