Computer Typing everything in CAPITALS

Dear all,
Can i write everything in capitals as a means of saving time?? Forsure pressing on the capslock back and forth wastes time. Iam writing with an assumption that typing in capitals takes the space as typing in small.

Stop Not advisable

You should simulate a real physician in that exam. I don't think a real physician would type exclusively in capital letters. The examiners assess you as if you are a real physician. The more you seem to be so, the higher your assessed score.

On that ground, I advise you against that. You should type normally and even use appropriate punctuation like full stops, commas, colons, and semicolons.
