Checklist for essays

Each paragraph contains one central idea

The last sentence in each paragraph links to the main idea of the next paragraph

The writing:

  • has a logical structure and the overall argument is easy to follow

  • presents a reasoned and supported argument

  • uses only relevant information which is accurate – precise / specific

  • uses impersonal language – do not use personal pronouns such a ‘I’ or ‘we’ unless you are given permission to do so

  • is objective and unbiased

  • uses formal English – do not use abbreviations or colloquialisms or SMS language

Step 11 Editing your final draft

You need to edit your draft before submitting the final version.

Read your Course Guide carefully to ensure that you have met the requirements of the assignment.
Observe the word limit or you may be penalised. Word limits as the words imply set the limit on the number of words that can be used. The topic has been designed so that the issues and complexities can be explored within this word limit.
Using ‘Tools’ on the menu bar in Microsoft Word, check your spelling and grammar and make the necessary changes
Remember: Good academic writing is clear, straightforward and grammatically correct. Sentences do not have to be overlong or use very complex vocabulary.

All essays must be referenced according to the guidelines set out
