I was wondering if I could get some guidance on which types of pen I should use in HSC exams. I've used about 6 different types of pens in HSC assessments but none of them seem to be able to make me write fast.

Whats the best pen for use in HSC exams? What types of pens did you use?

something that glides in both directions. something that doesnt leak lots of ink on the page ie a fine tip. something that i can hold halfway up the stem and gain the most leverage out of.

i think that there is a thread exactly the same as this one.

but i would say the papermate xtend!! it has the best grip, like it relaly grips even when you have sweaty hands throughout the test.

it is one of them ball point pens which are smooth gliding, and acts like a gel ink, doesn't leak as well.

damn it, i should have gotten paid by papermate for supplying free advertising?! :D

get one that has a good grip and gel ink (but doesn't leak), so you don't need to press hard. also get black over blue if you can.

no an option for me.

I'd get some dodgy yr11 student.

Plus it's really hard for me to think and say essays out loud. And the essay would probably become too colloquial.

But if I could, I'd really want to use a Laptop or Computer with Word Processing.

avoid thick pens- I used one for my eng half-yearly and within ten minutes my hand started cramping up and having spasms. I am also looking for a good pen, and thank you people for the advice. I can't believe this thread exists.
