Don't be gutted mate, jeebus I thought you'd failed something vital, crack on chin up, balls in a comfortable position. :)

Mate, we're normally chuffed if someone has managed to spell their name without too many crossings out - chill back!

As long as it's legible and reasonably tidy, then that is acceptable for now. Eventually the form will either be completed online or scanned- that hasn't happened yet, so it just needs to be comprehensible to another human.

Tipex is not a good idea, nor needed.

Interestingly, a lot of companies use handwriting analysis to suss out the character of the individual. The Royal Marines worked out a long time ago that the handwriting on Armed Forces application forms was usually that of a 30-40 year-old female.

The female is usually the Mother of a son wishing to join the service.

That first sentance made me laugh quite hard and my stomach still hurts from my PJFT yesterday so I just cramped up on my keyboard.

I hope you're happy =(
