Writing top-grade academic essays doesn’t come easy to most students. They take plenty of skill and practice to master, and can be discouraging to complete when students aren’t prepared with the write tools. Here are 10 tips for writing an A+ grade paper:
A topic that is genuinely interesting to you will come off a lot more interesting in your paper. Choose a topic that is original but one that you feel passionate about writing.
Draft a thesis that gets to the point quickly. Don’t write a complex statement that will only confuse your reader. Keep it clear and concise. Your readers will appreciate it more and your work will be stronger.
You need an outline to keep you from getting off track. As you write your essay you may find your thoughts wander. This is when you should refer back to your outline to discuss your strong points only.
Don’t start and stop when you write your first draft. Keep going without fixing your mistakes or worrying about choosing the correct word. You’ll have time for corrections in later drafts.
No one wants to stop to look up a long word you have inserted to sound more academic. In fact, doing this accomplishes the exact opposite. Use clear and simple English, similar to that you use every day.
Your introduction will set the tone for the rest of your essay. Be sure you have an attention-grabbing start that flows naturally towards your thesis statement. This will help your reader navigate through the rest of your essay.
Just like your introduction sets the tone, your conclusion should guide your reader back into the real world. Show them how your arguments have proved your thesis statement.
It’s important that you take your first draft and revise it in order to make it stronger. This may mean removing or rearranging whole sections, paragraphs or sentences.
Be sure to take a microscopic approach when you proofread and edit your paper. Small mistakes can be very distracting and be a the reason you receive a much lower grade than you deserved.
Lastly, have someone you know to read your paper. He or she will be able to provide feedback and perhaps catch another mistake or two.
