OMR sheets are most commonly used as answer sheets for objective type questions that have multiple choice answers. This is different from a normal answer sheet as it is a technical document which is checked by the OMR Software and not manually. These sheets have several technical parameters and dimensions that are quite important for the software to read them.
The OMR sheets contain bubbles, circles or boxes in place of the answer options. However, not all papers that have bubbles can be called OMR sheets. You will find four index points on the corners of the OMR sheets. These points enable the software to read and evaluate the sheets. As the OMR sheets are special documents, typically certain precautions have to be followed while filling them. Let us take a look at some of the instructions.
These are the standard instructions that are generally seen on a typical OMR sheet.
