Will special handwritting be a problem during the exam??

Dear all,

I have a question regarding special handwritting. I have lived in Germany for many years and get used to German handwritting habit. Here people write the number one in a special way, it looks like "1", not as in other countries, people write like "l".
Some time it can be confused for other people between one "1" and seven "7".
I want to ask whether this will be a big Problem. Will all the examiners britisch?
Will the papers all reviewed centrally in UK?
Because if they will be reviewed locally in Germany, I think I will be fine.
Anybody can help with this question?
Much appreciated.

Its hard to tell where the papers will be reviewed.. But u may want to focus on what you are writing and that it may not be misunderstood by the examiner...
Even in India we write one as - 1 only.. But we do write it in a way that anyone will be able to easily distinguish between our 1 and 7..
