Good Pens to use for Exams - Suggestions/Post Advice or Pen

I know this may seem rather pointless, but I was wondering what you's all think are great pens to write with, particularly for exams. I definitely need a new pen in time for exams, so thought I'll see what others have on this forum.

I personally am a tad on the slower side of writing, and therefore, do prefer a smooth as pen, with a nice grip that isn't too big.

Let me know of any suggestions, and post your pens down below! :)

Kilometrico = life <3

Also papermate InkJoy are pretty good, but I find that you get a few duds in each packet and they're pretty pricey.

I usually use a feather and a well of ink myself. It takes extra time to write all those answers in calligraphy but i think they'll really appreciate it.

Get something with a soft grip for the love of God. Nothing like writing for three hours to pretty much feel your finger bones pressing against hard plastic, its very uncomfortable.

I personally use this pen, but in blue.

Initially hated it but now it's my favourite. I am not sure why you ask online though people have different opinions. My suggestion is going into your local office works and test them out that. Nowadays they have huge shelves of open packet to test.

Hope you guys can recommend pens for me?

A smooth pen (preferably ink/jel) that glides well paper without having to put a lot of pressure, (well suited for joining writing)  (thats why I avoid ballpoint pens)
Also, it would be great if the pen does not smudge a lot... as i am leftie...

Gotta second the uniball eye micros, absolutely killer pens for writing. They are a tad expensive though.
