    1) my writing in these exams has been very scruffy and crappy. i can hardly read the F***er myself. are the examiners used to this, or are they impatient little fools who will not mark it cos they cannay be arsed to try to read it?

    2) in that bit where it says 'reference number', several times i have simply wrote the title of the paper. this is due to extreme stupidness. the teachers hardly tell you what the f*** to write on the front, so will it matter, or will all of my exams now be marked invalid?

    Yeah as lnog as the hand writing is ok and they can make out what you've put then its ok. And paper reference isnt essential, as long as they know what paper they're marking.

    well that is both bad and good, though when you are expected to write like a motherF***** they should expect poor writing for sure..

    Exactly, i had to rush my history exam so bad, my writing was really bad, but they'll still be able to make out what ive put, even if they cant make out some of it, examiners look out for certain words, or facts to give you marks for.

    my writing always turns out scruffy towards the end. if they can read it then you'll be ok, i think.

    oh yeah, for sure, they probably read the key words and without reading the whole sentence, know what the hell you are trying to say(half making up the rest of it), they best as well do anyhow...

    Try switching pens, sometimes a more comfortable pen allows for neat handwriting.
    I use to use a feather ink pen, but that was...

    Now I use a fountain ink pen, I write like a proffesional poet now, I create state-of-the-art written work. :rolleyes:

    My normal writing is uber crappy, because I used to write with my hand like a left handed person even though I'm right handed but I don't anymore. Anyway, in the exam I switch everything to italics because it actually looks neater as a whole page, but is actually impossible to read and it's my bit of revenge to the examiners.

    Then i'd either complain (because i know that my writing can be made out and read) or id leave it. Its not like i'd know if i were marked down anyway.
