I recently took the A level CIE business studies paper 1 and i found it easy, my asnwers were complete to each question. however i wrote way too much for section A which left me with only 25 minutes for the essay, which resulted in quite messy handwriting. therefore although i think my answers are complete and should be credited with full marks, does any one know if the handwriting can depreciate these marks if the examiner has trouble reading it?
Yes it is true that the examiner can only mark what they can read, but don't forget they read "messy handwriting" for a living as most of them are teachers or have been - so they are pretty good at it.
I wouldn't worry, what's done is done and chances are the examiner will be able to read 99% of it, in which case i'm sure they _ _ _ fill in the _ _ _ _ _
