Writing in capital letters in the IELTS test

I was talking to a student the other day about how to fill in the listening and reading parts of the IELTS test. He wondered if he should write in capital letters. This is a very good idea especially if you have concerns over the legibility of your writing. A lot of us now do not hand write very much anymore, and perhaps our writing is more messy as a result... Capital letters make it easier for the examiner to see what you wanted to write, so yes, for the listening and reading parts, I would recommend using capital letters on your answer sheet. For the writing section, writing in capital letters is not practical, as there is such a short amount of time to write the essays, and writing in capital letters would take too long.
