An essay will only be accepted if it meets the following prerequisites:
The reviewer will assign each essay an Editorial Rating on a scale from 1 to 5 stars during the review process. Each essay is judged by the following criteria before it is assigned an Editorial Rating:
Most student essays completed at late school or early university level receive an Editorial Rating of 2 stars, with excellent student essays receiving 3 stars. Only outstanding essays, usually written by scholars or postgraduate students, receive ratings of 4 stars or more; and ratings of 5 stars are traditionally very difficult to achieve. For this reason, please do not be alarmed if your essay is rated two stars or less -- it is still very useful to students and we are still very pleased to have it on the site.
