Admit Card for an Examination
The admit card is a document that you must keep with you while going for your board, university or recruitment examinations.
A hall ticket is a card that you must present to any entrance exam on the day of the exam (like JEE, AIPMT, SSC, etc). Without a hall ticket, you will not be able to take the exam even if you reach the exam centre.
Admit cards are sometimes called Hall tickets depending upon the exam for different organisations but they carry almost the same details, so in further discussions we represent them with the common name ‘Admit Card’.
An Admit card is an overall summary of the details of an exam, details of the candidate and the details of the centre where the exam is going to happen and each of these details have some importance.
Let's discuss the details of the admit card and its importance:
- Name of the Candidate: The name of the candidate is printed on the admit card to validate the genuine candidate, it is validated through different IDs of the candidate. It helps in limiting fraud.
- Roll Number: It is a unique number for the candidate provided by the organisation for which they are appearing in the exam. Every single candidate has a different number.
- Registration Number: It is students’ application number which they get at the time of submitting their form or applying for the exam.
- **Parents Name: ** It is provided at the admit card to validate the candidate through their different valid IDs.
- Exam Date: It is provided at the admit card for the candidates, about the schedule of their exam. As the exam of different subjects are scheduled on different dates, the admit card helps to identify the exact date of a particular subject of a particular candidate.
