Because i changed 3-4 of my multiple choice answers by placing the X on it and selecting a new one. I hope the computer doesn't stuff up and mark it wrong.

I doubt it, otherwise it couldnt comprehend the crosses and "correct" statements on the paper.

The exam supervisors said they are... and I was like "huhhhhhh"... what is there's crosses/corrections and shit..

Maybe they use some special optical character recognition software or something... who knows, who cares. LOL

Maybe a shitload go through the scanner/computer, and any with more than one black spot per row are "rejected" for hand marking.

Initally they are marked by computers. However if the computer detects more than one marking per question, or no answer to a question, then it is rejected and hand marked.
