Guide for Clients Using WritePass Services

Here at WritePass we are in the business of helping you do better at your coursework by providing model essays and dissertations. This guide is to clear up a few misconceptions about what you should, and what you shouldn’t be doing with the work you purchase.

Although we understand how tempting it is, what you really shouldn’t be doing is passing off the work as your own. There are very strong ethical reasons, and reasons to do with plagiarism, why this is a bad idea, but also other reasons why you shouldn’t give in to temptation. We cover this in the guide, and also give you some pointers about using the work to help, inspire and aid you to write brilliant essays of your own!

Ethics and Plagiarism

There are two main reasons why you should never hand in our essay as your own:

  • Firstly, it isn’t ethical. If you check out your university or college’s website or handbook, there’s bound to be a discussion of ethics, and it will almost certainly mention this sort of situation. Basically, it’s cheating to pass off someone else’s work as your own. It’s not fair to you, it’s not fair to your university as a whole, and it’s not fair to the other students on your course.
  • Secondly, it’s plagiarism. Quite rightly, all academic institutions are strongly against plagiarism, that is, passing off someone else’s work as your own, or not citing your sources adequately. Plagiarism is a complex subject, and you should refer to your university guidelines to help you avoid it, but passing off a WritePass essay as your own would certainly be plagiarism. Penalties for plagiarism vary from institution to institution, but are usually very severe.

Other Reasons Why it Isn’t a Great Idea

It’s probably very tempting to try and pass off the essay you’ve paid for as your own work, however (and trust us on this one) it really isn’t a good idea. There are several reasons why not:

  • The writer doesn’t go to your university, so he or she might not be aware of the detailed instructions you’ve had from your tutor about formatting etc.
  • Perhaps you were asked to include details from a lecture you attended, and all you have are some handwritten notes - your writer won’t be able to include this sort of detail.
  • Your tutor is likely to be familiar with your style of writing, and will notice if you submit a piece that’s either written in a very different style or is much better written than your usual work.
  • It’s quite possible that the work will be ‘too good’ compared with your usual standard, and that will make your tutor very suspicious!
  • You’re at university, school or college to learn something. you aren’t going to learn much if you don’t engage with your essay at all and just hand in someone else’s work.
  • It’s also against the WritePass Terms and Conditions to pass off our work as your own.

What you Need to Do to Turn Our Essay into Your Essay

You should view the piece of work you get from WritePass not as something to pass off as your own work but as a model answer. That is, treat it as an example of how the project, essay or dissertation might ideally be tackled. Model answers are used frequently by universities to help students understand what’s expected of them.

Treat the WritePass work as another academic source, just one that happens to answer the very question you were asked to address! You might:

  • Use the essay’s reference list as a starting point to carry out your own research.
  • Study the structure of the essay to see how different parts work together.
  • Learn from the way different aspects of a theme are contrasted
  • Identify the elements of critical analysis and try and bring a similar criticality to your own work.
  • Use the essay as an overview of the precise subject you want to investigate for yourself.
  • Try and paraphrase some of the essay in your own words. Don’t then use the paraphrased essay as your own, as that would also be plagiarism, but this will give you an idea of the topic and force you to think more deeply about it.
  • Try and critique the essay: can you think of any arguments against the viewpoint it puts forward?
  • Use it to understand how referencing should be done. Look at how frequently references occur, and how the reference list is put together.
