- Give it a rest
This might not sound like a good idea, particularly when you’re time-limited. However, just to gather your thoughts is really important to take a short break. You will be able to look at your work from a new perspective and reveal clear mistakes when you reestablish your mind.
- Read it aloud
You take the rhythm of your essay when you pronounce the words you’ve written and you notice when it is off. It helps you focus not just on the words but also on the sentences and their significance. Before you hand it in, you must be sure your essay sounds perfect.
- Focus on individual words and phrases
Try to focus on each word when you read your essay. We always see, and not really, what we meant to say. Beware of each sentence and sentence helps you to ensure that your ideas are properly presented.
- Check the format
Consult your tutor/university for the requirements. Do you want your name included? Is there double spacing on the lines? Make sure that all specified instructions are in the correct format.
- Look at the overall structure
Structuring an essay successfully means following the logic of the reader. Read your essay in the shoes of your reader. Consider whether you clarified at the beginning of your writing is logical and properly organized, what you will write about.
- Avoid repetitions
Make sure that in your essay you don’t repeat the same things to meet the word limit. Remove all unnecessary details to prevent your reader from turning attention to the main arguments. Only once will your reader read your point to absorb it completely.
- Ensure you follow the guidelines
The instructions for each essay are given. Check if your work is correct, interpret ideas clearly, follow the structure and check if you reference your work.
- Get a second opinion
When you have been very careful during the writing process, it is difficult to identify any single mistake. If you have a good friend in your writing, ask them to read and propose corrections to your essay. The second eye pair helps you to identify the mistakes.
- List the mistakes you make
The words you misspelled or grammatical mistakes made will not take you much time. This list is to remind you of the usual mistakes you make during your writing.
