Does messy handwriting greatly affect your essay scores in ACT and standardized tests?
I have to admit, I am not one of those people who can write an immaculate essay under forty minutes with calligraphy style writing. I can try to make my writing clearer, but that will slowly down my writing speed a lot. When I try to write faster, it has the opposite effect; my writing becomes messier. I have written a lot of essays in class such as the APUSH DBQ or English Analysis Essay. My writing is not so messy to a point that you can't read what I say. But still, some words are blurred and the letters are not perfectly straight since I am writing under time constraints. When it comes to grading the essays on the AP exams or standardized tests, do the graders actually take your handwriting into consideration when grading? How do they view an essay with good content but bad handwriting?5 replies
