    messy handwriting/ scrawl

    Hi!
    Teachers:
    Please excuse my messy handwriting.
    Please excuse my scrawl.

    I wonder if they can be interchangeable.
    Thanks for your answer.

    They are very close, interchangeable really. Scrawl tends to be less legible. I might be able to read your messy handwriting, but not be able to read your brother's scrawl.
