Is there any effect of bad handwriting on board answer sheets?
To some extent, yes. The person who is checking your answer paper is a human. They have to check at least 20 or more copies per day as per the instructions. So if he finds the answer readability is difficult, it is genuinely becomes demotivating to read it. By good handwriting I am not meaning to write like printing machine. I am just asking to write in readable way. Don't take the test of a person who is checking your test answer. :-) All the best.
