painful handwriting

Handwriting is very painful in university examinations.

We are often asked by university students if they can use a PC in examinations. This is an example of they type of email enquiry we receive:

Dear Educational Psychologist,
I am a student currently in university, and am finding writing increasingly difficult. My writing grip has always been very tight, and I write with a lot of force. Iā€™m finding it increasingly painful to write, as my grip is so tight my hand gets sore quite quickly and this causes my handwriting speed to become very slow. I would like to use a PC in my university examinations, can you help me?

Dear Student,
I am very happy to make this assessment and you are correct providing you have evidence from a suitably qualified professional then you are entitled to reasonable adjustments in examinations, in this case it is likely that the use of a PC would solve the problem, but an array of adjustments are possible.  

Our DSA assessment would be the most suitable for you:
