Have Someone Review your Essay Before Submission

All too often, we write an essay, and by the time we are done, are so burnt out that we don't even want to look at it or think about it anymore. We just want to print it off, stick it in our binder to be turned in the next day. Forgetting to review your essay is one thing, but having another person reviewing your essay could bump your grade up a whole notch or two.

When we write something, its just a bunch of thoughts in our mind that we try to translate to this written language that hopefully will be comprehensible to other people. What we don't always realize is that its almost impossible to tell exactly how other people will feel when reading it. You may be leaving out key points that you think are obvious in your own mind, but they might not be as obvious to the reader.

When you are done with your essay, before you print it out, read it to yourself out loud. You may catch quite a few wording mistakes that you can easily repair. There's a few extra points you just bagged. Next, print out a copy and have someone else sit down and read it. Possibly even have them read it out loud to you. If they find something is confusing or doesn't make sense, make a note and move on. Go back to your computer and fix anything they didn't understand, and call it a day.

You already spent countless hours writing your essay, so why sell yourself short and skip an extra 15 minutes of work that could pull your grade up by a few letters?
