Downloading the Question Paper
The question paper for each OTBE will be available for download in the examination portal 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the examination.
Uploading the Answer Scripts
The student will be able to upload the PDF copy of the answer script after 30 minutes from the time of commencement of the examination and the upload facility will be available until one hour (60 minutes) after the end of the examination.
For example, if the actual time of the examination is from 09:00 hours to 12:00 hours, the question paper will be available to the student at 08:30 hours. The uploading window will be open from 09:30 hours and will remain open till 13:00 hours.
In case, a student tries to upload the answer script but fails to do so, s/he will be able to continue to upload for another additional 30 minutes after the end of the designated hour for upload.
If however, the student fails to upload the answer script even during the additional time, s/he will be marked as ABSENT in the examination.
If however a student DOES NOT try to upload and chooses to wait, for such a student, the upload time will expire at the designated hour and the student will be marked ABSENT.

At the end of the examination, the student will need to scan the hand written pages of the answer script and convert it to a single PDF file using an appropriate app (as advised).
The maximum limits of the resultant PDF file, which is to be uploaded, is 5.0 MB.
Once a student uploads the PDF file, the upload will be closed for that examination and the student will NOT be able to upload it again. Therefore, it is extremely important that the student practices beforehand so as to have a smooth uploading experience.
You can find relevant instructions for scanning your answer script to a single PDF file in the page Scanning to PDF. If you follow the correct procedure for your device, the resultant PDF file for scanning 10 (ten), A4 size pages is only about 2.0MB large. We suggest that the student practices this part (scanning to PDF) well before and familiarise him / herself with the whole procedure.
