Anyway, our teacher recently photocopied a student's essay that they did in class which got high marks to show us and their handwriting was different. It was cursive and hard to read but it was pleasing to the eye.

And it got me wondering, if you decided to write cursively, would examiners have trouble trying to decipher the letters just as much as students? Another thought that came up, are examiners more biased towards fancy, aesthetically pleasing hand-writing?

Personally I prefer printed when I mark exams because it's easier for me to get through quickly. But at the end of the day, as long as your writing is legible and your content good, you'll be fine.
