Typos and referencing errors - how much grade will it cost?Watch
my 10 000 word dissertation has about 10 typos including 2 on the contents page (eg 'probativve' 'trail' not 'trial' and 'cogencyof' not 'cogency of', and about 2 grammatical errors (eg 'enabling giving assistance'). how many marks will it cost me do you think?
also if i blagged my references or page refs, no one will know surely?
also how much marks will a referencing error cost?
thats why the previous post made up a number.
i dont see how. like in a 10 000 word law diss, will 10 typos make a differecne between a first and a 2:1
It depends how many marks have been allocated to mistakes and then whether or not you've done enough to cover yourself in the first place.
So yes, typo's will cost you.... how much? you'll have to wait and see.
And you couldn't have fixed them then reprinted because?
If you only make it by two marks, and the mistakes are worth four...then yes, you'll go down. But if you get a top first, then you'll be fine
Don't worry about it now, nowt you can do to change it.
i've just ahnded in another essay, reckon it can get 75%, its 2500 words but it has two typos, identical, i wrote 'to assisting the determination' instead of 'to assist the determination' TWICE.
please give me an idea how much it will cost. about 1% or 5%
e.g. in a 4 mark question, grammar will account for 1 mark only
