Purpose: To provide direction to Chief Examiners when marking scripts that cannot be read/understood because of the quality of the handwriting.
Policy: It is the responsibility of the student writing the exam to ensure their handwriting is legible so that it can be read by the Chief Examiner.
Every effort will be made by the Chief Examiner to mark the scripts to the best of their ability.
A decision by the Chief Examiner not to award marks due to illegible writing will be noted on the exam paper. If it cannot be read, it cannot get marks.
The decision by the Chief Examiner and confirmed by the ARP is final. The decision cannot be appealed.
Students whose handwriting has been determined to be illegible will be informed of such by the Director of Education.
