Basically my handwriting in exams is usually bad and sometimes my letters don’t look how they should. For example an ‘e’ would turn into a line bc of how quick I’m writing. Are examiners sympathetic when it comes to handwriting and will it affect my grade, cause it looks like I spell things wrong when I’m not 😭
unfortunately i think examiners are usually not very sypathetic with handwriting, as they have hundreds of papers to mark and they would be frustrated to see bad handwriting and will not take their time to understand your writing.
they also get paid on how many papers they mark so they will not waste too long on one paper.

but it also depnds on the examiner, as some would be kind and some not so much.

at least this is what my teachers always told us

That actually sucks man, I think I did rlly good in both my papers but I didn’t have much time to check over what I wrote so I hope it doesn’t ruin my grade too much
