The ethics of our model answer services
Avoiding the temptations of plagiarism
As tempting as it may be to submit your custom written essay, dissertation, or assignment as your own, this isn’t how our service is designed to be used. To make the most of any of our model answer services, you should take the work we provide as a basis for your own further research, and build on the knowledge to create your own original work.
Here at UK Essays, we’re passionate about education and we want you to get the most from your university education. Allowing plagiarism of the original work we provide would be a disservice to you, as it may prevent you from acquiring the knowledge you need when it comes to the module examinations.
Guidance on fair use
Understand what our fair use policy means to you
How should I use the model answer then?
When you receive your order from us:
- Read through the model answer so that you understand how the question has been answered.
- Try to develop your own ideas and arguments.
- Look up the material that your writer has found, and use this to find more material.
- Use the essay that our researcher has produced as a guide to producing your own work.
- Ensure that your final piece of work is 100% original and formulated using your own creative thoughts.
This might take a bit more effort than simply submitting our work as your own, but it does mean that you’ll learn the topic and will be prepared for your examinations.
Will I get caught if I hand in the work?
Our work is 100% original, written to your specification, and will never be uploaded to the web. This means that if the custom work was handed in to a university then the university would not know (from using a plagiarism scanner alone) that you have used our services.
However, this is not to say that your tutor would not recognise the fact that you had handed in work that was in a different writing style to your own, or that you used sources to which you would not normally have access. Further, the tutor may ask you to explain the work to them, which may be difficult if you haven’t done the research yourself.
Handing in the work of a researcher without changing it is plagiarism because you are ‘passing off someone else’s words as your own’. Even ‘changing it around a bit’ would be plagiarism, in accordance with the definition of the word. The custom research we provide will be of far greater benefit to you if you use it in accordance with this fair use policy. You’ll improve your grade, learn how to write a great essay and feel a great sense of satisfaction for having done a good job, on your own merit.
So why would I buy a model answer?
Students spend a great deal of time reading through an immense amount of research material, which may or may not contain relevant information to their studies. Further, the style in which that material is presented is rarely the same as the style in which they will need to tackle their assignments. Whilst tutors will sometimes give valuable guidance on the essay writing process, only a minority of tutors meet the issue head-on by providing students with examples of answers designed to show the student how the essay should be tackled.
It is an undisputed fact that one of the very best ways of learning is by example and practically all of our knowledge is acquired this way from the day we are born. This is why a custom model answer provides one of the very best research tools a student could wish for. The answer gives the student an example of how the question can be tackled. It may not be the only way the question could be tackled, and indeed, the student may form an entirely different view to that of the researcher – but the model answer will provide the student with a starting point to conduct their own research and to write their own work.
