It is usually immediately obvious to the person marking an essay whether the work has been edited or not. Even an excellent essay, in terms of content, can be marred by basic errors such as typos, poor punctuation, spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Furthermore, if there are problems with clarity and concision, then using an essay editing service is even more important. It does not matter how good your ideas are, if the person reading your essay is distracted by sloppy mistakes, repetition or unclear expression, your grades are going to suffer.
Essays are usually no more than five thousand words in length. This means it is essential that you identify the core concepts you are writing about and are able to present them in a clear, concise manner. Simple mistakes in spelling, punctuation and grammar will annoy the reader and detract from the quality of the text, but failure to express your thoughts and ideas in good academic English will cost you marks. A good essay editing service ensures that these errors are rectified, and that the reader can see you care about presenting your ideas in error free English.
It is easy to misspell or use a word incorrectly and spellcheck on Word will not pick these up. An expert essay editing service can help with this also. The academic proofreaders and editors at Oxbridge Proofreading are all subject specialists, so will recognise an incorrectly used expression, turn of phrase or use of terminology.
It is also very easy to include words that are used in everyday English, but often these are inappropriate for academic writing. Contractions (e.g. isn’t/can’t), for example, have no place in an essay. Even though you may think that your meaning is clear when using them, other people may not understand exactly what you mean. Therefore, it is important to use clear, formal English. Sometimes it is difficult to spot these mistakes when you have been so concentrated on researching and writing your essay. This is why it can be useful to have an essay editing service check your essay for you; our team will approach it from a new perspective.
If you are serious about producing your best work, employing an essay editing service is crucial. As explained, even small errors can distract the reader from the purpose of your essay. You want your supervisors to concentrate on the points you are making about the subject, and good, clear, error-free English will help them to do this.
