Great experience

Great experience. Been waiting to write this review.I was waiting to receive the response from my department in response to whether I passed the comprehensive exam or not. After successfully passing the exam, I can confidently say that Scribbr definitely helped improve my main issue: conciseness and clarity. I would use scribbr again if I have any other high-stakes paper that require someone who can edit and give me the peace of mind that I won’t lose marks due to clarity.

Great editing and proofreading services

The services provided by Scribbr exceeded my expectations. I recieved my in-depth edit earlier than expected, while the quality of the corrections and comments were great. Further, Scribbr provided me with a lot of information and support, although I never encountered any issues.

How long does it take to have my thesis checked?

You can choose between three set time periods. The editor can edit your thesis within 24 hours, 72 hours or 1 week. The deadline is set as soon as you have paid .

Do you need to hand in your thesis in four days? Please choose either the 72 hours or 24 hours deadline. All the editing periods include weekends and holidays.

You will receive a notification via text message and email as soon as your thesis has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

Can I upload my thesis in sections?

Yes, you can upload your thesis in sections.

We try our best to ensure that the same editor checks all the different sections of your thesis. When you upload a new file, our system recognizes you as a returning customer, and we immediately contact the editor who helped you before.

However, we cannot guarantee that the same editor will be available. Your chances are higher if

  1. You send us your text as soon as possible and
  2. You can be flexible about the deadline.

Please note that the shorter your deadline is, the bigger the risk that your previous editor is not available.

If your previous editor isn’t available, then we will inform you immediately and look for another qualified editor. Fear not! Every Scribbr editor follows the  Scribbr Improvement Model  and will deliver high-quality work.

However, every editor has a slightly different editing style, so you may notice small inconsistencies in editing choices. As with every proofreading order, be sure to carefully review your editor’s changes and suggestions as you finalize your text to ensure that everything is as you want it.
Can I have my thesis edited during weekends and holidays?

Yes, our editors also work during the weekends and holidays.

Because we have many editors available, we can check your thesis 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. This includes weekends and holidays.

Do you choose for a 72 hour deadline and do you upload your thesis on a Thursday evening? Then you will have your thesis back by Sunday evening!
