Why the students' pen is also decided by the schools?In most of the schools, the use of a pen is started from the 4th class. In many schools, students are told that they should use maximum gel pens only. Rather, in some schools, the rule is mandatory for fair copy or fair notes, gel pens should always be used. As much as my pen writing experience is concerned, I feel our writing speed is faster when we use a dot pen, on the other hand, handwriting is more beautiful in some cases with a gel pen. Apart from this, we also notice that a gel pen's ink expires relatively quickly whereas a simple dot pen's ink lasts longer.
The work of writing is done in copies so that students can prepare better for their exams by using those notes. I don't think it will matter which pen a student is using to writes. Schools should understand that the overall development of the students than this new strange rule is more important.
