Illegible Handwriting in Examinations

You must write all your answers legibly. If your work is deemed illegible by the examiners you are at risk of receiving a mark of zero. It is at the School's discretion if you are called in and permitted to convert your work to typescript; you would normally be expected to pay for any expense incurred.

If you have a medical or physical condition that prevents you from writing legibly, please contact the Disability Advisory and Support Service by the published deadlines for advice on support available (email:

If you suffer an unexpected injury immediately before or during your examinations which affects your ability to write, please contact the AMBS Student Support and Guidance Team (email: for appropriate advice on applying for mitigating circumstances.
