Take the photos clearly with good lighting in the room so that the answers can be clearly read by the teacher.
Take photos of the relevant part of the answer written without surrounding things. Make sure the photo is sharp and readable.
Write on white paper with black pen to make the writing readable. Do not use fine point pens which make very thin lines.
Write only on one side of the paper as photos with embossing or ink from other side make the text non readable at times.
Do not write in tiny non-legible hand writing, write in slightly bigger size so that the text is clearly readable.
You can also upload a scanned PDF too, however multiple photo uploads are recommended in place of PDFs.
