Writing Advice for College Students

Students must develop strong writing qualities within their college years. Professors’ writing requirements are high, and their term papers are challenging. Students’ grades drop drastically if they make too many grammar mistakes within their essays. College is not like high-school: professors expect a lot more from you. Your spelling must be perfect and your word order carefully chosen in order to get good grades. That’s why we put up a list of writing tips for college students – to make your job easier!

Check it out, and let us know if there are any other comments that you’d like to add, or tips that you’d like to give out.

1. Read the Assignment

Before starting to write, you need to know your facts, what’s being asked, and plan everything out. So, breathe, and think before doing anything else.Don’t start right on it. Kaley Cheney, freelancer at AssignmentGeek writing service and world traveler, gives out advice on the topic.

“You must read the assignment very well before starting to work on it. If you are not paying attention to the requirements, you might start on the wrong foot. Read it thoroughly and start working on it according to the task’s guidelines. Research your topic beforehand, and brainstorm ideas. “

2. Plan it out

Next step is mapping out your plan. You know what you want to write about, now all you need to do is give it a form within the context. Here are some key points:

  • Introduction –introduce the thesis and main points that you’re going to discuss within your paper/essay. Map everything out for the reader to make their job easier. Your introduction should be the extended summary of your article.

  • Body – structure your body paragraph into different sub points. Have at least 3 sub points. For each point, come up with a suited example, and expand on it. Examples are crucial!

  • Conclusion – keep your conclusion brief, but sum up the main points you’ve discussed in your body paragraph. Draw a conclusion based on your previous analysis of the content.

3. Fill in the Information

Now that you have everything planned out, fill in the gaps with all the information that you have. You have already done your research, so include facts into context – more exactly, into your Body paragraph. Come up with strong examples and arguments for every sub point, and add valuable content. If you don’t have enough ideas, research your topic more; maybe you are simply not ready to reach step 3!

4. Revise It

OK, so you researched your topic, included all the necessary information, and drew a conclusion based on strong analysis and qualified arguments. Next step is revising! Go over your text again and notice if there are any words or phrases that don’t fit in the context. If that is the case, cross them out and come up with better alternatives.

Pay attention to interchangeable words such as “aspire” and “inspire,” or “on” and “in.” If they are not used in the right context, they don’t make any sense, and your professors might not like it.

5. Proofread It

You are almost there. What you must do next is proofread your content. Check if there are any grammar/spelling mistakes within the text. When you re-read it, concentrate solely on that. Do not focus on the word order at all. Now you are reading your paper again for only one reason: to see if you misspelled words. That’s it!

P.S. – if you discover other mistakes while proofreading, scan over your essay again and correct those errors. You want a qualitative paper!

6. Ask for Feedback

Last one, best one! It’s time to ask for feedback. Ask a friend, relative, or sibling to read your essay. Then, listen to their feedback, and apply the good advice. Revise your paper again, and see if there is anything else that needs to be changed. If there’s none, you’re all set! You can submit it.

Wrapping It Up

Developing strong writing skills takes time and commitment. You must be persuasive in your work, practice often, and be passionate about it. Do not hurry, take things step by step! Don’t fly at it, be patient, breathe, and analyze your thoughts before you start working.
