Nope but there’s techniques to make your writing more legible.

Personally I ended up writing exams in small caps (so still using a big capital where needed but all lower case letters in half size capitals). That can significantly improve legibility.

I also double spaced my lines as standard. It makes what you have written more readable and gives you space if you need to go back and add/expand on a point without things getting too cramped.
