    I'm worried that my handwriting will work against me. I have the handwriting of a 12 year old, it's readable but very scruffy. The test is also timed so i feel i'll be in a further rush to complete it and so my handwriting will become even worse. Would this have a negative effect on my application? (As i said, it's readable but very scruffy

    Hi, although I don't know what test you have to do it'll honestly probably be fine, Ive seen some adults with some pretty horrendous handwriting so the admissions people will be used to it, especially if the test is timed they'll expect it to be a bit scruffy. Plus it would be quite bad if they didn't offer you a place on the course based on your handwriting so as long as it is somewhat readable you will be fine
    Good luck!
