    Hey TSR,

    Just a quick question, i prefer to write with a fountain pen because there's less strain on my hand. Do you think it will scan my answers if i use it?

    Thanks,

    I always get told to use blue or black ink at the start of an exam. They just assume that nobody will use a fountain pen because it's effort. Ask at your exam office at school to see if you are allowed

    My brothers and I have always written in fountain pen, as do most of the people at school, and have never had a problem with any exam boards

    Good Luck

    I've always heard that you have to use a ball point pen which doesn't include a fountain pen. If you look at the front of exam papers it will show you the instructions.
