Essay-writing company’s adverts banned

The BBC is reporting that an essay-writing company has had its adverts banned after they were deemed misleading…

The Advertising Standards Authority ruled that UK Essays had failed to make it clear that the papers were not meant to be submitted as students’ own work.

The online ad also gave a “misleading impression” that the firm had received positive press coverage, the ASA said.

UK Essays said it would ensure its fair usage policy was more prominent within the website.

A website for featured text that stated “guaranteed grade, every time. We’re so confident you’ll love the work we produce, we guarantee the final grade of the work.

“Unlike others, if your work doesn’t meet our exacting standards, you can claim a full refund… loved by customers & the global press UK Essays have lots of press coverage from all over the world confirming that a 2:1 piece of work produced by us met this standard… We were the first company in the world to offer you guaranteed 2:1 and 1st class work”.

A complaint was brought by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), a universities watchdog, which argued that the ad was misleading because it did not make clear the risks associated with submitting bought essays.

    I think that bough essays are no worse than the written essays. Bought essays contain the same information on the matter and they operate the same keywords. However, the bought essay is made professionally, that’s why it is faster and easier to read. This should be a plus to using them in the university study. I didn’t think that having bought an essay one could worsen their chance of getting the best level of education. If someone doesn’t allow bought essays than it is time to look at choose best LinkedIn profile writing service UK to figure out the hard skills one has already and advertise them.

    I don’t agree with this decision. I believe that such services are very helpful for students in their learning process. I have repeatedly used a custom college essay writing service. And I have never regretted about it. It helped me in various situations. Instead of banning such services, it would be better to change the education system.

    As far as I read in the review now the policy of written service has changed a lot. Advertising is still prohibited to them, and Google Edwards does not allow the ability to properly advertise such services. However, now, most companies do not guarantee an assessment for their work and say that they provide only additional information that the student can use for their work. In Terms of Use now indicated that the work was writing service solid not considered finished work and can not take as a finished work.
