    ok so i have really bad handwritting, my teachers find it hard to read some of the stuff and some of my teacherrs cant read it al all. But, in exams i never get a recall or aanythingcoz examiners cant read my writting, i have the chance to use laptop or handwrite during my philosophy exam and i think it would be good to type, the only thing is i know without spell check in exam i will make a lot of spelling mistakes because of typos which will mean i might not be able to get my predicted grade (A). With writting i wont get spell words wrong but my only fear is that the examiner wont be able to rwad my handwritting

    what shall i do? any advice would be aprriciated, will examiners mark me down for typos or is worth taking the risk of handwriiting my exam?? thanks in advance

    What I've found with typing is it is a lot easier especially under time conditions. It'll take less time to type things up rather than writing as you won't need to make the letter shapes. I guarantee you'll have some extra few minutes to look through your essay for typos. Better to lose a few marks than fail the entire exam because your writing is illegible.
    Hope I've helped
