One thing I’ve learnt, to my great surprise, while marking my students’ exams is this:

My handwriting, which I’ve always considered pretty bad, really really could be a hell of a lot worse.

    My handwriting is atrocious, so good luck marking my networking exam ;-) I find it’s a lot better when there’s plenty of time to write all my answers down though – my last two exams were so wordy I had to rush and scrawled and still didn’t have time to finish completely. Poor exam markers, I do feel sorry for you :-)

    Yeah, I think the main problem here is the rush to get it all down. I doubt their handwriting would be like that if they were able to write at a leisurely pace. Saying that my handwriting is pretty awful either way.

    Apologies – mine is most likely one of the offending papers ;-)

    Ever since I discovered the keyboard all those years ago my handwriting has descended to the realms of barely legible scrawl… :(
