What type of pens is great for writing exams?

Features of pens

Here you can see in the above image there are 4 types of pens given. So here are some important things about them.

  • Ballpoint pen – Ballpoint pen is largely used by most people in daily life apart from the exams. If you have a habit of using this pen, you can have it as your primary exam choice.
  • Gel Pen – Using a gel pen is a great option in the exam but make sure it fades away with time and can badly affect the page if it comes in contact with water.
  • Rollerball pen – If you compare rollerball pens with ballpoint pens, the main difference is ink. This pen contains water-based ink, and due to that, it can smudge it easily.
  • Fountain pen – Fountain pens are expensive than the other three pens and have a great speed that you can write with.

As per my personal experience, I have seen most people use two kinds of pens ballpoint and gel pens. Rest two are rarely used by people so I am excluding them from the list.
