Usually 7 or 8. My hand is about ready to fall off afterwards though!
I wrote 24 in a 3 hour exam last week, and afterwards, my hand wouldn't stop twitching for hours, which was a bit odd!

2 to 2 and a half - I type mine though (dyspraxia - if I didn't, I wouldn't get past one page!) and keep to a guide of 1500 words for each essay - I'm doing an English degree.

If I know what I'm writing I can write upto 1 A4 page per 6 minutes (my writing's pretty big!) but if I allow any thinking time and I have to think hard about what I'm writing I could probably do 7 or so in an hour. In a 2 hour law exam I wrote 19 pages, but I knew exactly what I was writing.

In a 90 minute exam I usually do 7-8 pages, with probably 10-15 minutes spent thinking :P

So probably about 4-6 in an hour.

Depends entirely on the topic. I've written 8 pages before, but in my recent exams, just 3-4 pages.

I've been doing my exams and they are all essay like questions, normally two in an hour.

I only ever seem to write a side and a half or two sides for each essay.. so 3 or 4 pages an hour.

Everyone seems to write so much more
I had to start writing fast at GCSE level. I'd say that I can use up around 14-16 sides of A4 paper in 1 hour. That's 7-8 pages.

Probably between 4 and 6 sides per hour depending on how well my thoughts are already composed, how many diagrams need to be included and things like that.

In a 3 hour 3 essay exam I've filled a full booklet and additional one, which is probably about 15 sides twice.

If it was just pure text, probably about 10-12 in 3 hours.
