SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) My normal writing is usually all capitals because it looks neater on paper & my teachers don't seem to mind it. I've gotten in a habit of writing in all caps and Ive been doing it since grade 12. I have a question, Should I write the essay portion in all capitals (like my normal writing, it will be very neat that way too). Or should I use normal spelling (its really messy, trust me its hard to read..) I don't wanna get penalized on the essay section for messiness or anything, but I also don't wanna get penalized for improper punctuation!! So what do you guys suggest I do ?
