High School Homework Writing Services Are Not Reliable

Recent years have seen an explosion in the number of online homework writing services. These companies make their money by providing writing services to students who do not have the time (or the inclination) to write their own papers. But how reliable are these services? How can you tell if they are reputable and will do what they promise?

What Is A Homework Writing Service?

A homework writing service may be an individual or a company that specializes in doing a student's homework for them. The majority of these firms operate online, and may not have a physical office, or individuals who will meet with you face to face.

Essay writing is just one service that can be purchased on these sites. They will also provide proof-reading services, editing jobs, and do lab reports.

Who Uses These Services?

Some students see these businesses as a last resort if they cannot handle the course work they have been assigned. Others simply do not want to do the work themselves. Some think that they will be getting ahead by hiring a “professional” to write for them.

If you do decide to go ahead and hire a writing company, you may want to have a back up plan. Especially if it is your first experience hiring a firm, you should be wary. Try to get a reference if you find yourself forced to make use of homework writing services. It usually makes sense to at least attempt to complete the project yourself.

What Are The Risks Associated With Using A Homework Writing Service?

When you hire a writing services firm to do your homework, you have no assurance that the final paper will be of the standard you require. Homework writing service companies often “recycle” essays and other assignments. You have no assurance that the work is original. You do not know whether or not it would pass copyscape, or some other software program that your teachers may use to check your work.

Very few writing services offer rewrites, and those that do, often charge premium rates to complete your assignment. In most cases, when you use an online writing service, you will never know who is actually composing your piece, and it may be impossible to communicate directly with them.

Few online writing services will have a physical location (or choose not to post it on their site). If you have a dispute over the services, or the quality of the finished product, it will be very difficult to get a refund. Virtually all homework writing services state (in the small print!) that they in no way guarantee that you will receive the grade that you want, or even a passing grade.

Perhaps the greatest danger of getting involved with homework writing services is that you are not learning. If you start letting someone else do your course work, you will become dependent on them. The further you fall behind, the more difficult it will be to catch up. There will be no writing service staff sitting next to you when it comes time to write your final exam!

  • Jessica (NC): I did not have a budget to spend on ordering a custom written assignment for my literature class, so I started looking for free options and found this blog. As a result I was able to write my paper myself and get a good grade.
