How Good Handwriting Skills can Boost your Scores in UPSC Exam?

If you are a UPSC aspirant, you must have known that though the prelims questions are objective types, you have to answer the mains questions descriptively and the exam is taken in a pen-paper mode that means you need to answer using your handwriting. And you should keep it in your knowledge that though handwriting cannot fetch extra good marks still it is very crucial in mains examination along with your excellent writing skill.

Why is handwriting important for UPSC mains examination?

  • Though neat and clear handwriting cannot fetch extra marks but a poor and illegible writing would surely make you lose some marks. That's why it is very important to have clear and readable handwriting to ensure good marks and to secure your seat for the interview call after the mains examination.
  • If your poor handwriting makes your answer unreadable to the examiner, it might cause a problem. Because there is no point of causing strain to his or her eyes and making him annoyed. So, illegible handwriting can annoy the examiner and thus marks can be deducted.
  • Since good handwriting with minimal scratches and cuts ensures the clarity of mind and thought of the candidates, this is always suggested to practice neat and clean handwriting.

How to improve your handwriting?

  • Smaller handwriting causes strain to eyes while reading. So, keep the font sizes normal to avoid any trouble.
  • The correct grip of pencil and pens is the key to having neat and clean handwriting. But as per our childhood practices, this is something that has been ingrained for so long years and it is difficult to change. But, when you are already on a journey of clearing the UPSC civil services examination which is happened to be one of the toughest all the time, you must be considering it to have a change that is needful to ensure your success.
  • Pens causing blotches should be avoided and use the right kind of pen that is lightweight as well as produce neat and clean ink. You can even practice writing with the same pen that you will use on the examination to ensure smooth writing.
  • When we start to write with more speed, we generally end up with illegible and unreadable handwriting. But the mains papers consist of descriptive questions and you have to write it down in a constrained time along with neat and clean handwriting, otherwise, it would not be decipherable to the examiner. So, keep practising answer writing at home by ensuring a balance between speed and legibility. Otherwise, what is the point of writing a piece of good content when the answer is not even readable to the examiner?

As an adult, it is difficult to change your handwriting. But ample practice can do wonder. But always keep in mind that, the handwriting need not be aesthetically beautiful, but it is genuinely required to be readable and clean.
