    The website is really great.But once we click the answer,if it is highlighted afterwards then it will be good , so that even if we take a print out we can refer it in future.Now what happens is that we need to take the print out and mark the answer ourself.

  • the Y

    To Atul – Trust me the current scenario will work better for u….u shud be able to recollect the answers after seeing them…thats the whole point! Out of sight out of mind doesnt seem like a right strategy for a competitive exam :)

    The point is that u shouldnt make this philantrhopic man spend his energy on redundant pursuits…better use ur own energy in writing down or copy pasting the answers….
