    For your second image, the bit that's been crossed out looks fine to me!

    The first is kind of half good, half not so much. Do you find that you rush to write words?

    Don't worry, my handwriting is crap too, and I get loads of comments on it on my assignments etc
    As long as your writing is clear in the exam/coursework you're okay

    PS
    People who write and speak faster have speedy brains that their hands and mouth can't keep up with

    Well, on the plus side, apparently people with bad handwriting are smarter as their brains work faster than their hand can keep up with

    OP, I think that one of the ways to make your handwriting clearer would be to make it bigger, if possible.

    I think the teacher's comment was quite rude tbh… your handwriting is legible, for sure!

    Honestly it's not the worst handwriting I've ever seen, my friends writing is terrible - it is literally a scribble, and in exams it becomes one continuous line on each page, he still got his 7/8 As though. I think your teacher was being a little pedantic in one or two places there.
    The only way I can suggest to improve your writing is to try and slow down. Now obviously some exams are tight for time (modern studies, history, business management, English, etc.) so it's gonna take some practice. Choice of pen might also help, might sound trivial but worth a shot.
