An overall comment is provided that summarises the main strengths and weaknesses of the student’s essay. A mark is given so that the student is aware of how the essay would fare in the actual HSC marking centre.

Students are encouraged to include questions, ask for advice or suggestions in their essays. Here, our student has asked rather involved question about her essay structure.

For issues that require more attention than just a simple correction or suggestion, your marker will provide a detailed explanation that addresses your concerns. Here, our marker has explained vital concepts that are essential in high-scoring HSC English essays.

Extensive in-line additions, deletions, corrections and suggestions are made to improve the student’s writing style, articulation and flair. It’s these factors that distinguish reasonable results from spectacular results.
