Is it okay to have someone proofread your uni essay?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
It's allowed. I send all my assignments to my parents to proofread, and they just highlight mistakes and send it back to me. They don't even understand what i'm going on about / say it's boring, but they're good at pointing out typos.
Of course it is ok, and anyway, how would anyone know you have asked a friend/relative to proofread it?
If it is cheating, the majority of students, past and present, are guilty!
