"The writing correction service is exceptional. I got remarkable improvement in my essays and language and increased my exam score."
  • How long does it take to receive my feedback?
    You'll receive your feedback up to 48 hours after the submission time. The feedback video and document will be sent to the email address you provide in the submission form.
  • Can I send more than one submission at a time?
    You can send as many submissions as you like, but you should bear in mind that you will make much more progress in your writing if you leave some time between submissions so that you can understand and work on the mistakes identified in the feedback and put into practice the improvements suggested. If, on the other hand, you send lots of submissions at once, you won't have the opportunity to make the most of the guidance given by your teacher and receive further advice based on the changes you've made to your approach.
  • Can I answer a question that is not on the question list?
    When you purchase Writing Corrections, you'll be sent a question list and you must choose a question from this list or your submission will not be marked. The list includes an extensive range of Task 1 (Academic and General Training) and Task 2 questions and gives a reliable indication of the kinds of questions you will get in the actual exam. The main reason for having a question list is that it ensures that we can offer you the best possible service. It also means that we can show you a sample answer for the question you've answered, which is an important tool to understand the best approach to a question as well as an essential resource for learning topic-specific vocabulary and key grammar structures. In addition, we want to be sure that the questions you're using are trustworthy. We don't want to let students write essays based on questions that aren't reliable because that would not help to prepare them for the real exam. ​ If you've written an essay in answer to a question that isn't on the list and you want feedback on it, you can book a 1-to-1 class with a teacher and use that lesson to get 1-to-1 help with your essay.
  • If I purchase 1 Writing Correction, can I send a Task 1 submission and a Task 2 submission together?
    No, this isn't possible. 1 Writing Correction entitles you to send 1 Task 1 submission OR 1 Task 2 submission. If you would like to send both a Task 1 submission AND a Task 2 submission at the same time, then you must purchase more than 1 Writing Correction.
  • Can I send my submission by email?
    When you purchase Writing Corrections, in the question list you'll be sent you'll find instructions on how to submit and a link to the submission portal. Please use this submission portal to submit your essay instead of sending the essay by email.
  • Can I send a photo of a handwritten essay or do I have to type my essay?
    No, this isn't possible. We only accept submissions that are typed into the submission portal. The reason for this is that the feedback we'll send you will include a document in which the mistakes you've made and the corrections of them will be clearly indicated, and this is only possible in a digital format, not using a handwritten document. We've found that this form of feedback document is the most effective and helpful method to deliver feedback to a student.
  • Is there a difference between Task 2 Academic and Task 2 General Training questions?
    No, there isn't any difference between the Task 2 questions that are used in the Academic form of the exam and the General Training form of the exam. That's why our question list includes all-purpose Task 2 questions, without any distinction made for each form of the exam.
  • How many words should I write?
    You should aim to write a minimum of 250 words for Task 2 and a minimum of 150 words for Task 1 (Academic and General Training). Submissions that are below these minimums are accepted. ​ In fact, the optimal ranges for word counts are: Task 1 (Academic and General Training): 160-200 words Task 2: 260-300 words If the length of your submissions falls roughly within these ranges, then you can be sure your submission is not too short or too long. ​ Please note that Task 2 submissions of longer than 330 words and Task 1 submissions of longer than 230 words will not be accepted. This is because it is not an effective use of your time to write essays that are longer than 330 and 230 words respectively as writing such lengthy essays won't give you sufficient time to plan effectively beforehand and proofread afterwards.
