Every student yearns to score a high grade in the assignment. Most of them despite putting a lot of effort get poor grades. Various causes lead to poor grades one of the most common causes include lack of planning and the time invested to analyze the assignment. As a result, the answers submitted do not answer the questions asked in the assignment. Therefore, to score high grades in your assignment here are a few tips you should follow:
- Demonstrate a clear understanding of the subject
Your assignment should demonstrate that you have thoroughly understood the subject of the assignment. For this purpose, you should do an in-depth study and read successful studies and examples in the field of research. Sample paper related to the topic of research also provides important points that can be used as an argument and can also offer valuable insight into the structure of the paper.
- Always give evidence to the claims, ideas, and arguments made by you within an assignment.
Statements used in the assignment should be supported by factual details. For example, this statement that says “Many foreign students struggle with the English language” is not supported by evidence. A statement that says “According to Survey by the University of London nearly 60 per cent of the foreign students struggle with the English language” is supported by evidence. Providing statistics from the authentic source further adds weightage to your argument. Similarly quoting renowned academics and experts in the domain of subject also offer higher weightage to your assignment.
- Prepare a logical and clear structure
Your assignment should display a coherent structure. The flow should be in a logical order. For example, you first introduce the assignment and let the reader know about the purpose and objective of the assignment. The start with the concept or theoretical underpinnings of the topic. This should then be followed by other researchers' work and arguments and your arguments. Introduce new ideas in new paragraphs and the opening of each paragraph should be strong. Each paragraph should connect with another paragraph. Students usually wonder why there is a need for a new paragraph even though the topic is the same. True, however, the length of one-paragraph becomes very long and sometimes reaches the natural length of the paragraph. Additionally, the topic discussed could be further or specific points discussed in earlier points should be emphasized upon.
- Ensure that you get rid of any material that is not directly linked with your assignment topic.
While researching the topic you make note of several points that may not be directly related to the topic. Students often tend to include those points as they have put in efforts to find out that point or those points are interesting. However, you should avoid this practice as it does not add value to your assignment and occupies valuable and limited word count.
- Follow the citations and referencing criteria as per instructions.
The referencing and bibliography section is the most neglected section that leads to a reduction in score. Make use of academic tools and sites to ensure that all your references follow set patterns as per the instruction of the assignment.
