    There are probably thousands of candidates who did not write their names in block capitals, including me and my friends. They still have your candidate number and centre number so they can still identify you, plus they can read your name lol. It's really their problem now.

    Pretty sure, though I cannot be certain. I think they wanted names to be clearer/easier to read, but if your hand writing is legible it should be fine.

    Yeah, the invigilators don't even tell you. It says at the top of the front of the page it says write your name in block capitals but so many people didn't, you forget to do things like that in an anxious exam condition.

    I did not use block letters for any of my papers and after realising that went to one of the invigilators today and the invigilator said it does not matter as long as it's clear enough for the examiner to read it.

    My excuse is that I always get the exam paper last because of where I am positioned. The invigilators dont even give us time to write it! My name is pong and theyve already started before I write everything!
