Editing online

What is Editing Online?

Relevant content, good grammar and correct legal referencing style are crucial for getting your message across to lecturers, which in turn will lead to better marks.

Editing Online allows organised students to have their work thoroughly proofread by a HD average student before they hand it in to be marked. Businesskool's professional proof reader, JD, will edit your work and provide comments using the track-changes feature in Microsoft Word. You can then either choose to accept or reject the suggested comments and changes.

Businesskool would like to encourage students to write well. The intention is that instead of simply accepting the suggestions, you will understand your mistakes and be less likely to make them in future. Writing well is a great skill and will serve you throughout any future career you may undertake.
