    Hi quick question it might not be extremely relevant to this thread. So I had an exam today where there was a lot writing and little time so my handwriting looked a mess. Usually I don't write notes to examiners but it was so messy I just said sorry for messy handwriting. I was fine till I read somewhere that you could get disqualified for writing a note to an examiner!! It wasn't even offensive
    lol ur fine they mean like writing notes that says stuff like 'if you dont give an a* ill kidnap your son'. the examiner will just ignore it. think about it examiner marks as quickly as possible to get as any many marked for more time and money. do u really thinks hes gonna waste his time tryna get u disqualified for writing 'sorry for messy handwriting'.

    True true. I've just never done it before so I was a bit nervous. Thanks a lot 😅

    Yours is legible, no need to worry. I guess in some peoples' cases it's if the examiner really really really can't read the writing, they can't understand the point the student is making and therefore can't give the mark.

    I thought I had removed the sample of my handwriting! I can still send you a much neater sample though!
