Exams. We all hate them, but we all have to do them. One thing that comes up regularly during long, fast-paced writing sessions is hand fatigue. About 20 minutes into an exam, people tend to get an awful pain in their hand muscles that leads to messy writing and regularly taking breaks, something you can’t afford in a timed setting.

Now, the question is how to write faster and legibly in the Exams so that one can impress the Evaluators and obtain more Marks within the allotted time of three hours? To write faster there are some Tips to be followed by students.

1. Use pens which you are comfortable with - Do not use new pens on the day of the Exams, ince you would have adjusted to the width and length of the pen while holding it. 
2. In case of Ball pens, always carry 3 to 5 extra refills which are already used partially - so that you do not use a new refill which may temporarily hamper your speed and rhythm of writing. 
3. Do not hold the pen or pencil very tightly - this will slow down your Speed of writing. Medium and normalholding will be sufficient. 
4. Do not press the pen or pencil heavily on the paper - this will take lots of your energy to write and will make you exhausted and lessen your speed of writing.
5. On the day of the Exams, avoid wearing any kinds of Rings, Threads, Bangles on the writing hand so that they do not physically hinder your pen holding or hand movements while writing.
