Up Your Research Game

Up Your Research Game

If you’re the kind of person that does their essays at the last minute and does most of their research online, then its time to change your research process. Essays, particularly those that you submit in college, are only as good as the research that you do. Professors want to know that you understand the topic inside and out. If you simply reiterate the information that your professor gave you in class, you’re going to lose a lot of marks. In order to get more marks, hit the library and read as many books as you can on the topic before you start to plan and write the essay.

Ask For Help Before the Deadline

Ask For Help Before the Deadline

When an essay is a week from being due, it’s likely that your professor will be overrun with students just like you that are panicking and asking for help. As a result of this, you may not get a chance to ask your professor all the questions you need to before the deadline. To avoid this, try to create a plan or a rough draft as soon as the professor sets the assignment. Then, schedule a meeting a few weeks before the deadline to discuss your ideas and ask any questions you may need to. This way, you get all the information you need and you’ll have more than enough time to complete your essay.
