An application for inspection/certified copies is not treated as a verification application.

Inspection/certified copies of evaluated answer books provides information for your academic guidance but does not provide any remedy in case of any discrepancies that may be noticed in inspection/certified copies.

The remedy lies in the process of verification of answer books, which is independent and distinct from the inspection/certified copies process. Hence, you may make a separate application for verification of answer books, without waiting for inspection/certified copies of answer books.

You can apply for both verification as well as inspection/copies of your evaluated answer books by following the prescribed procedure.

Take care to superscribe the envelope with the name of the examination, the application relates to.
