I have the same problem haha but yeah as someone with bad handwriting, I could easily see the marker getting frustrated pretty quickly with that 😅 might want to write a little slower if possible

Just write in block caps if you're concerned about legibility, does wonders for me and I am dyspraxic.

I’m sorry, no. Thought a lot of it was Chinese characters when I first skimmed over it. You don’t want to frustrate an examiner who is straining and struggling to decipher it.

No. The examiners probably won't be able to.


I have a similar issue with my handwriting and sometimes cannot read it myself...

Yes although not every word but I'm very good at reading handwriting and I struggled, you need to take your time more whist writing which I know is a challenge under pressure, your letters are too bunched, focus on sticking to the line and giving each letter it's own equal space in a word

Examiners will also struggle and if there's a few words they don't understand they won't get the full meaning and you'll lose marks

I can't read it. It's illegible in a very weird way - to me the biggest problem is that your handwriting is sloped strangely and the letters don't look like they should, my brain had a hard time even recognising it was written in Latin script. It's not the neatness that's the problem, is what I'm saying, it's specifically the way you're writing. (idk if that makes it better or worse)

They will make a reasonable effort to understand your script, and if need be involve one or more other people. If multiple people cannot read it (and some will be very used to almost indecipherable handwriting) then you may lose marks.

I've spent the last few years tutoring so I can make out singular words and a few sentences, but I'm straining to read it as a whole. The letters seem to merge together.
My concern would be that an examiner may misread you work and struggle to understand the structure of your answer, deducting marks.
I'd try and adapt your writing if possible, but I understand that it's hard - I had to learn how to write 3 times before my work was legible and now people always comment on how beautiful my presentation is, but I do have dyspraxia.

The numbers are okay, but I find the words very difficult to decipher - some of them I can't tell what the individual letters are supposed to be even if I concentrate on them one at a time.

Btw I also have dyspraxia, I've managed to practice and get a style that isn't neat or aesthetically pleasing and is very scratchy, but should be legible to most people. I've found using pens with very sharp nibs helps a lot and focusing so that even if singular letters aren't legible, they are easily interpolated. I think you will need to practice a lot, there's no other way about it.

I've never written full essays by hand, but I wrote my A-level physics which had some essay questions and written in my university exams with expected marks.

Agreed. To add on to this - also dyspraxic and I find bic biros put the least amount of pressure on my wrists when writing essays, although I'm still in agony by the end of it. I also find pencils easier to use, but obviously they're not appropriate for exams.

also dyspraxic, i can’t really read your handwriting, i think bloc capitals would be better or maybe try setting aside 10 mins everyday to practise your handwriting.

Thanks for all of the responses guys my teachers actually identified this as a problem in my last mocks so thankfully I am able to use a laptop for my exams however I was just curious if it would be legible to examiners since I prefer writing my exams with pen and paper

I'm also allowed a laptop and prefer pen and paper. My handwriting is more legible than that though...
