Writing an essay is an inevitable part of your life if you’re in high school or college. It is by no means an easy task. Not only do you require strong writing abilities, but also research and proofreading skills. Before selecting a topic for your essay, you can always take help from a professional to write your opinion essay.
At the same time, you must ensure that your paper is completely error-free. You don’t just have to look out for grammatical mistakes and typos – there are some common mistakes that students mistake that you must avoid.
Here are some mistakes and ways to avoid them:
Not developing a strong thesis statement
The entire essay depends on the thesis statement stated in the introductory paragraph. If the thesis itself is weak, how can you expect the essay to perform well? Your professor will check the paper, on the basis of your thesis, so make sure that it is strong, clear and arguable.
Overuse of quotations
The purpose of the essay is to give the teacher a chance to evaluate what you have learned and understood about the topic. And to judge your writing skills – if you bombard them with quotations from other people it will defeat the entire purpose of assigning you the essay. Now, I’m not saying that you don’t share a quote at all – you can if it is relevant to your topic and helps support your thesis, just don’t go overboard with it.
When writing the concluding paragraph, you should sum up the paper and the thesis statement. But don’t just repeat everything word for word – summarize the main points without repeating them.
No smooth transitions between the body paragraphs
When moving from one idea to another it shouldn’t seem forced or abrupt. Having smooth transitions make the reading process much more enjoyable for the reader, use transitions such as moreover, furthermore, on the contrary, etc.
Using unauthentic sources
When gathering relevant data on the topic don’t blindly trust any website or source. Look for its credibility, only then incorporate the given information in your essay. For instance, you should never trust Wikipedia.
If you avoid these mistakes in your next paper, you will for sure score a top grade. However, if you don’t have the time to pay attention to all these details, you should seek professional help instead of handing in a poorly-written paper.
