When you take a scantron test, is it ok to use a mechanical pencil? I know you are supposed to use a number 2 pencil, but do mechanical pencils us #2 lead? I was just wondering cuz I use mechanical pencils for everything but scantron tests, cuz I was afraid to take any chances with a test lol. But anytime I put wooden pencils in my backpack they always break. I know this is probably a stupid question by cc is the place for stupid questions lol.
