And for many, it’s part of the procedure when writing and submitting any work related to academia: whether it’s dissertation proofreading, thesis proofreading or essay proofreading for example. Check out our tips on How To Write A Good Essay.
Previous blogs posted on our site will give you an understanding of the process we engage to make your work perfect. However, we have also considered that some students may need a little more information before deciding to use a professional academic proofreading service. Therefore along with highlighting our fantastic customer reviews, we’ve asked our team to share five essential tips for you to use until you’re ready to commit to a professional service.
Don’t waste the extreme effort you’ve put in from the start
Let’s begin by reiterating why proofreading is essential before you submit any work. Putting 100% of your time and effort into the research stages, and painstakingly translating what you’ve learned into a document to be proud of can be exhausting. And, let’s face it, time-consuming and extremely stressful.
Add to this the common problem that when looking at the work you’ve written, your brain will automatically skim many of the words; because it’s seen them before. You can, therefore, miss errors without realising.
So you will agree that it makes no sense to ’fall at the last hurdle’ by not thoroughly checking your work before submission. Or better still, getting a professional proofreader to do it for you.
Believe it or not, mistakes in your grammar and punctuation will have a negative impact on your final mark; even if your work is full of the most insightful and thought-provoking content. Why? Because it will be difficult to read; making it harder to understand the points you are making. The marker will become so distracted by your typos and grammatical faux pas they will be less able to focus on the content.
It will leave a lasting impression no doubt; but sadly, for all the wrong reasons.
