the language formal / academic
USA spelling (gaol v jail, offences v offenses)
“So” – get rid of it
Capitalization – an Act of Parliament.

/ word choice
If your syntax is poor the thrust of your
message/argument is lost
Poor syntax means the essay will be
confusing and difficult to understand
Ensure your word choice is appropriate and
conveys the nuance that you desire.
Connotation can be important
YOU NEED TO PROOF READ YOURSELF

Structure

Think about your structure – don’t use less than
12 pt font – 1.5 or 1.25 spacing is easier to read.
Right hand or fully justified looks better. Don’t
use italics in the whole text or centre justified.
Avoid overly long sentences
Paragraphing is a good idea as are full stops –
these give the readers a break. Careful with
commas – are they necessary etc?

Clearly make your point – if you cannot clearly
highlight the point YOU are making – how can
you expect a first time reader to discern your
point?
Statistics / research are powerful in justifying
your points
Referencing was generally OK – keep it up as it
conveys to the reader the degree of research
you have undertaken
Always include a bibliography UNLESS
specifically told otherwise (that would be
unusual)
Acronyms are only used after you use the entire
version
