UK Essays respond to Ofqual report on their A level essay writing service - 30th September 2014

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) has commissioned a report produced by consultancy London Economics on online student support services in which the services of and All Answers Ltd have been tested and reviewed.

The report features two test purchases for A-level A grade example essays via, and goes on to include details of the assessment of the essays produced and the external examiners’ feedback on the essays. All Answers Ltd welcomes the input of Ofqual and external assessment of our products; unfortunately the report London Economics has produced can only be described as fundamentally flawed.

“We are extremely disheartened and disappointed by the wholly inaccurate and presumptuous report published by Ofqual, and have no option but to refute a number of their conclusions”, explains All Answers Ltd CEO Tony Eynon. “Of particular note is a heavily biased focus against the student support industry and a narrow look at this segment of the market. The methodology of the paper is deeply flawed and inconsistent, using a prejudiced approach in marking the essays. Papers were not marked anonymously, and examiners were informed about the source of the essays prior to marking. There were also a number of incorrect assumptions and misinterpretations of our sales procedure.”

All Answers Ltd have prepared an official response which examines the fundamental flaws in the methodology of the paper produced and highlights the biased nature and errors within the paper. We invite our readers to view our findings here.

Further to this, we have submitted a Freedom of Information (FoI) request to ascertain the exact amount London Economics have been paid to produce this report in what can only be described as a damning waste of taxpayer funds.

As evident by Ofqual’s own recent conclusions student support services and essay writing companies have no bearing on concerns from the general public or education sector relating to consumer confidence in the examination system. All Answers Ltd has been unable to reach a conclusion why this report has been produced, aside from being an attempt to distract the general public from the vast array of failures Ofqual are involved in.

All Answers Ltd would also like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our stance and willingness to have an open, clear and fruitful conversation about the student support service industry and its future.

UK Essays featured in Times Higher Education - 10th October 2013

The analysis is superb, the writing style good - but is it too good? It bears little resemblance to previous work by the same student: indeed, it is in a different league. But it has been through Turnitin, the academic plagiarism checker, and come back clean. Has the student miraculously improved, or are you looking at a particularly pernicious problem afflicting today’s higher education sector: the paid- for, custom-written essay?

In order to learn more about their services, I spoke to a member of support staff at UK Essays.

The researcher's work will show you how to write the work and what sources you can use.”

Jilly Walden, the quality manager here at UK Essays, was interviewed for a piece in the Telegraph:

“We all get tarred with the same brush,” complains Jilly Walden, quality manager at, based at the same address (in Arnold, near Nottingham) as Degree Essays ( and Law Teacher (

“Yet, unlike other companies, we are happy to publish our address, and we are happy for students to visit us; we have got academics in-house. Nor do we condone plagiarism.

BBC World Service 21st June 2010 When does getting online help for an essay become cheating?

UK Essays were asked to appear on the BBC World Service to take part in a discussion on plagiarism and online essay help:

An increasing number of universities are using special software which can detect cases of plagiarism.

But there are companies which offer an essay-writing service and those cannot be picked up by such software.

Simon Rhodes is with a company called, which sells essays to students; Barry Calvert is with nLearning, which sells software that helps detect plagiarism.

Newshour's Robin Lustig asked Simon Rhodes: “If he was buying an essay from UKEssays, wouldn't he expect him to hand it in as his own work?”

We’d like to point out that the newspapers are in no way affiliated with our company; nor do they give any personal endorsement of our service. Having said that, we think you'll find that we don't need them to do so. The newspapers serve a purpose – they show that we are genuine UK-based company and that our essays and dissertations meet the quality standards that we publish.

About the press articles

You will appreciate that there are many organisations that disapprove of our service, since they are adamant that all students are dishonest and will use us to cheat. This is, unfortunately, reflected in the comprehensive collection of articles we have presented below.

We have reproduced them, regardless of the criticism they contain, as an aid for potential customers to appreciate the authenticity of our business; we believe this is extremely important as there are so many bogus essay and dissertation sites on the web. You can learn more about spotting the scam companies in the UK Essays scam warning guide >

However, please be aware that there is a proper use for our service – although written as custom research pieces for you, our essays should be used as a basis for producing your own work. Just as you would not reproduce a book or journal that happens to address your question exactly, you should not hand in our essays as your own. We stress this time and time again, but it is a point that the press fail to appreciate – we do not condone plagiarism. For further information about this, please read our fair use policy >
