Hit bulls eye by perfecting your assignments: Some tips from the pros
‘Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.’ : Colin Powell
This quote clearly states why you must seek perfection desperately. No matter how much hard work you do, unless your assignments have perfection, you may not be able to get the scores that you desire. Thankfully, writing a perfect assignment isn’t that difficult. It requires a careful approach and die-hard commitment. If you are committed to deliver a perfectly written assignment, this article will provide you a detailed approach that will help you hit the bull’s eye.
Research and Brainstorming
• Before you start, decide what you want to write. Don’t write for the sake of writing. Your work should have an objective. It should follow a systematic approach. It should be informative and should have something that people would like to know. Unless it has that ‘X-factor’, it will fail to make an impression. A perfect assignment should have a perfect topic and should cover perfect points. Choose your topic accordingly.
• After selecting the topic, select the content that will justify the title. Do an aggressive research to find out as much information as you can. Write down the points on a notepad.
• Once you have done your research, prepare an outline for your assignment. You can achieve perfection only when your work has a flow. If it isn’t flowing properly, it isn’t perfect.
• Once you have decided the flow of your assignment, it’s time to write it down.
• Refer to your notepad for points that you want to cover.
• While writing the first draft, focus more on including the information that you want to be covered in your assignment. Ignore the language and grammar part, as they can be addressed while writing the second draft.
• When your first draft is ready, refer your notepad again to check if you have covered all the points. In case you have missed something, include it immediately. A perfect assignment should have everything that required to impress the reader.
• Revise and improve your first draft. Multiple revisions are required to bring perfection in it.
Proofreading and Formatting
• You won’t believe, but this is the toughest part of writing an ideal assignment. No matter how informative it is, if it fails to stop the wandering eyeballs, it lacks perfectionism. To help your assignment get the attention that it deserves, you have to correct the flaws that you missed during the writing phase.
• First, proofread your work. Start correcting one paragraph at a time instead of proofreading the whole content. If you try to proofread your entire assignment in one go, you are most likely going to miss the issues towards the end of the document.
• Proofread multiple times and in random order. You can start from the conclusion and work towards the introduction. You can even proofread random pages and paragraphs. This way, you will actually proofread the work instead of revising it.
• Format it. Give it an eye-catching look. If you are not sure which formatting style to follow, refer the instructions provided by your teacher. The line spacing, font, font size, use of highlighters, etc. should be in accordance with the guidelines. If you haven’t received any such guidelines, ask your teacher for help.
• When your assignment is ready, refer the directions that you received from your teacher and make sure your work is in accordance with them. Most students ignore them or assume that they know what is mentioned there. Don’t assume anything. Read them, understand them, and follow them.
Assumptions can affect the quality of your work. Don’t assume that your assignment is perfect. Instead, work hard to do everything that you can to make it perfect. Good luck!
