    Im not too sure if anyone can relate but my handwriting is atrocious. Im an A grade student in all of my subjects and my handwriting is ever so poor, Im convinced that if I somehow manage to improve my handwriting it will make my GCSEs far easier to revise for.

    Any tips to improve my handwriting?

    Your handwriting is just what it is. If you want to improve it, write a lot by hand - but it'll take a couple of years to improve. It's a little over ten years since I finished my GCSEs and mine is only just at the point where it's legible.

    As for the tip, have you thought about trying to teach yourself to write with the other hand? I found out, during an assessment for dyslexia, that I should have been left-handed but made myself right-handed through habit, you could be the same. I taught myself to write (and do other things) left-handed and now find a lot of things much easier.

    This can be a common issue for high achieving students. Their hands can't keep up with their minds which results in poor handwriting. It's not always the case but it tends to be explainable that way.

    Improving you handwriting will have no impact on revision. At most you'll be able to read your notes a bit better. But if it were that much of an issue you'd just type them instead.

    The bigger issue comes with exams. If your handwriting is so bad that the examiner marking your paper can't read it you'll lose marks.

    Slow down and practice. That's really all you can do. Handwriting is a skill and the only way to improve a skill is to use it.
