    while you're trying to improve your handwriting, I suggest that you increase the spacing between two lines. this would make things easier for the examiner. also, please try to reduce the strikeouts.

    thanks, I'll be mindful of this the next time I write.

  • bhai sach batana concentration ka problem hai na tumko bachpan se?? even my writing is like this.. we could have been doctors!!

    as far as problems go, see I had problem in knees I think, and also hit my head in an accident, and the list is quite long, but nothing that can be remotely related to why my handwriting turned this way. I think for concentration issues, I never concentrated on this issue :lol: I have successfully tried writing in beautiful ways, but was too slow, so just gave up on that after some time. I think I have had a habit of thinking more, and writing less for all my school years. That laziness can be one reason. One of my ma'am in school would call me 'pa.say.n.zur' for my slow writing speed. I liked maths more, which involved less of writing. Over time I developed a liking for the way I wrote; I felt, kind of, unique. I could write with a super fluid speed, my actual handwriting (the above one is a bit refined one) would look something auspicious, though illegible to most, perfectly legible to me. And only I was going to read my notes anyway. In exams I would try to simplify it a bit, and in engg did not need so much of big write ups mostly, except in a few subjects.

    But now need to make it legible, spic and span. some writing practice would help I think.

    p.s. If just poor handwriting could make us doctors, even then I won't go for that :blush: no offense meant for doctors

  • Richard Parker...bro i have the same problem,and I am astonished by how similiar our handwritings are ! A smal tip : Write in block letters witha sharp ink pen. It has helped me a lot.Legibility has increased and so has symmetry.

  • Richard bhai, i think you hold the pen grip pretty up. I think you take your grip close to the tip, it might reducw your writing speed initially, but you can capitalize on it in few days. Neatness is a problem which can irritate a 50+ yr old examiner.

    u r probably right, will try out variations on gripping a little lower. Thanks for the input bhai.

  • Bhiya dont wanna dicourage you , but u havnt been writing much i suppose ( writing with intend of improving

    Lemme point of few things , you have the capbilty to improve as your words the stokes have a particular shape , i m unable to explain , but lets just say when u write alphabet "c " , "g " or any ither fir tgat matter it is written similarly , so its all about arranging the letters

    Main issue with bad handwriting people (like me) ,is that they dont have a predefined shape for their aphabets , which isnt the case with you

    I have a friend. , The only person whose handwriting was worse them me , he went to delhi for coaching and his handwritting is faw better them a lot of midcore handwritting people i know

    His mantra : just keep writing with intend on improving it
