5 Ways To Keep Your Paper Within The Word Count

by John Mark Academic Writing Help

A major hurdle that most students face while writing a paper is to stay within the word count or meet the word count. Maintaining the word count of the paper helps you to avoid any kind of negative marking. So writing a focused paper within the set word count is of paramount importance.

Here are some things that you can do to stay within the word limit.

1. Avoid exaggerating

It is easy to get carried away when you finally find a topic that you are passionate about and which also has enough information available on the internet. In a bid to cram in all the information that you have gathered, you may end up exaggerating. So be precise in your university paper to help it stay within the limit.  

2. Segregate all of your ideas into paragraphs 

This practice will help you understand whether the concepts in each paragraph string along like the perfect string of pearls or have a knot that just doesn’t fit. If there’s a knot, it means you have drifted off the topic and have disrupted the flow of the paper. Remove that point immediately and add a new one in its stead.

3. Underline each topic statement

A topic statement is something you write at the beginning of each paragraph to denote what that paragraph is going to be all about. By underlining this statement, you’ll never lose sight of what you’re supposed to write as highlighting it will serve as a constant reminder to stay focused.

4. Back up your matter with data

You’ll have to do a little bit of extra research, but we promise you, this hard work will be worth it. This will result in better grades. But that's not all. When you have some substantial evidence to back up your thesis/topic statement, there'll be minimum chances of you straying off-topic. If you do not have the time, you can also take affordable paper help for the purpose.

5. Adhere to the prompt

Sometimes your teachers will give you a specific question that you have to touch upon in detail in the paper. If you want to write a focused paper, direct your research in answering that question only, even if you’re tempted to the go the extra mile just to appear smart.

Once you employ these hacks when writing your paper, you wouldn’t feel that stressed out about crossing the word limit. As a result, you will be able to produce the best paper and impress your teachers.
