As a teenager, you are very creative and you have a great imagination, and your professors know this. This is why they will ask you to write term papers every two weeks; these will help you develop your creativity and improve your vocabulary. Of course, most of the students don’t like this but they do their best to get the maximum grade. However, many of them make the same mistakes over and over again, but you can avoid them easily. Here are the 5 main things that can spoil your term paper:
Yes, this is a very important factor even if you never thought about this until now. Just think about this: you can write an amazing composition, you can bring new and extraordinary information and express your interesting opinion, but your professor is not able to understand any of this. If he can not read your handwriting, he will give you a low grade without even knowing what you wrote. Take your time while writing and make sure that everyone can understand the letters.
This is a clear sign that you did not pay attention to your assignment. You can have the best information in the world, it will be useless if it is not organized properly. You need to have a proper introduction, body and conclusion if you want to have the chance to get high marks. Also, be sure that your ideas are organized in logic way, and that you don’t jump from one idea to another without anything in between.
You want to finish this assignment quickly, so you thought that you should write about something boring and easy? Well, this will not be appreciated by your professor. He already read dozens of papers with the same subject, and he is not interested in doing this again. Besides, for him this will be a clear sign that you did not bother to find something new to write about and he will be very severe when he will verify your composition. Try to be innovative and original and don’t be scared to talk about complex issues.
Simple is not good, but too complicated is not good either. You will have to read your composition in front of your colleagues, and they have to understand everything you wrote. Many students think that if they have many complicated words on their paper, they will impress the audience. Well, this will not happen. Your colleagues will not pay attention to you since they can’t understand what you say, and your professor will not be thrilled about this. Also, you will have to spend a lot of time to explain all these terms, when you could use this time to do something more useful for your school.
You are a college student, so you should have great grammar by now. It is not acceptable to have more than a few errors in your composition, and your teacher will not tolerate this. You don’t want him to think that you did not study at all in the last years, so verify your composition before you submit it. Keep an eye open for any punctuation mistakes. If you are not confident in your abilities and you don’t know if you can discover all the mistakes, ask for help from a colleague. Ask him to read your text and see if he will find any error. If he does not, it’s safe to submit your composition.
