I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote an essay in pen and as a result of that, whenever I had to during a SAC, my hand would hurt and my writing legibility would significantly lower by the time I was done writing an essay. 

There is a good quick fix to this that I used in year 12 to train my hand for essay writing. All you have to do is tape a AAA battery to the end of your pen. 


It’s like weight training for the fine muscles in your hand. Over time as you get used to the weight you can keep adding more AAAs. By the time the SAC or the Exam comes, take off the batteries and you’ll find a dramatic increase in your writing speed and legibility. 

No more hand cramps and random squiggles and lines in an essay!
