Have anyone of you guys used a ball frixion erasable pen on your English exam. Or most importantly is it allowed? If yes are there any risks on record?

they're new pens

they are erasable

if water is poured on them, the ink dissapears

why wouldnt it be allowed?
sometimes I feel as if I'd be more enriched in life if I bought an RV and started cooking meth

Disgusting - I wouldn't expect that of MHS gentlemen.

oh i havnt thought of that....

i shud get this pen, i use pen for maths and sometimes it gets really messy if i stuff up a question and have to rule it out


Does seem a little risky though, if along the way your VCAA exam if placed in a hot room/somehow exposed to sunlight then all your work disappears!

And if its left in a cool room, all the erasing will reappear and you won't be able to distinguish what is being said.

I don't like the way those pens write lool, Like the ink quality was compromised to make it erasable :/

you should probably avoid it - as jinny said, your work might disappear (under some odd circumstances lol). It's not like you can see your exam and erase anything after you get your study score anyway...so why risk the chance of having a pen that can rub out if the examiner was drinking water while marking your exam?
