    Can handwriting put you off from getting a 'B' though you feel like you've answered correctly throughout an exam!?
    For E.g. GEO has SPAG, so can the size of your handwriting impact your grade?

    I shouldn't think that handwriting is essential to your grade. Usually as long as it is clear enough to read and understand, it won't impact your overall grade at all. Even with SPAG - they don;t consider presentation, more execution.

    I hope everything goes well for you on results day!

    Handwriting doesn't matter. If it's really bad then an examiner will have to hand mark it and that doesn't stop you from getting a B

    SPAG is basically, spelling, punctuation and grammar so the size of your handwriting is not part of this. As long as you have legible handwriting, that is all that matters. Your grade depends entirely on what you've actually written.
