    thank you so much for the reply. i feel very confident now . thank you very much

    I've seen worse I would still write way clearer than that as if I were marking I would just give up

    All the doctors that I've dealt with have untidy handwriting... so you're halfway there!

    Serious note... I have seen worse...

    Could try a few of these:

    Different pens - thickness of the nip, pen it's self, liquid
    Holding it differently/placing hand in a different position
    Slow down

    At least your letters look like they're from the English alphabet; when I write too fast my letters look like they're in God damn Hebrew! Otherwise they're only just about legible and that's only if you're trying really hard.

    I can read it don't worry what you've got to remember is that most of these markers are teachers themselves so they will have seen their fair share of messy handwriting and they will know how to read it!
    Good luck on your results day!
