So you have already taken your time and written what you would in all honesty consider to be an incredible paper and all you are left with is to edit your thesis and present it to your teacher for marking. Since you have already done the hard part which involves doing the research and eventually writing, there should not be a reason for you to fail because of something as slight as editing your work. Do not get this wrong however, in as much as this task is considerably easier, it is still one of the most common areas where so many students come to lose lots of marks. The following are some useful tips that will help guide you the next time you are editing your thesis:
One of the easiest ways of editing you thesis appropriately is to get rid of the longer sentences. Try to read your paper and find them and if possible, halve them.
If your paper has too many adverbs, try and get rid of some of them. These words tend to bring a sense of prolonging to your work.
You have to choose whether you want to speak in third, second or first person in your work, depending on what you are after.
There are some punctuation that must really be done away with. Pay attention to the commas in particular.
As you read through your work try and replace the negative speech terms with more positive highlights.
If you are having a harder time with long terms, try and use words that are smaller and simpler to comprehend.
Read through the work a second and third time to find the redundant words in use.
Prepositions can also add a lot of clatter to your work, so get rid of those that are not really needed.
Words like “in order to” make your paper look like you ran out of ideas.
The appropriate use of verbs makes your paper more active
