Who can possibly do my homework?
Students today face more schedule constraints, overwork, and general stress than ever before. Most have fulltime jobs, or multiple part time jobs, are trying to take too many classes in order to reduce their financial load, and may have other stressors, like family. This can lead to an enormous amount of stress, especially when so many instructors assign too much homework. Much of this homework is also classified as busywork—it adds little to a student’s knowledge or educational experience.
Even the most dedicated student can find themselves panicking over the amount of homework they’ve been given. There may not be enough hours in the day, quite literally, for the student to finish everything that’s expected of him or her. Desperate times lead to desperate measures, and some students have no choice but to seek third party help to complete their coursework.
Options for Getting Someone Else to Complete Your Coursework
There are a number of options available to the student desperate to complete their homework:
- A friend or acquaintance
- Copying another classmate’s work
- Hiring a homework service online
Pros and Cons
There are different advantages and disadvantages to each of these options. Relying upon a friend or acquaintance is risky for two reasons. First, they may not complete your work on time, since they are doing you a favor. Second, it could result in a troubled relationship with the person if it doesn’t turn out well. Additionally, you’ll need to worry about discretion. After all, plagiarism is harshly punished.
Copying another classmate’s work has many of the same difficulties. It also requires having the classmate coordinate with your schedule in order to have the assignment finished on time. Furthermore, you’ll have to ensure that the work isn’t an exact copy so as not to make the instructor suspicious. Finally, there are certain assignments (like essays) that just can’t be copied in this manner.
Hiring a homework service online solves most of these issues, especially if you take the time to research a reputable service. The downside, of course, is that you’ll have to pay.
What about free services?
Free homework services are nearly always problematic because they rely on plagiarized material in order to provide the free assignments. With plagiarism detection software growing ever more complex and advanced, this is a risk you can’t afford to take. It’s far better to pay a fee than be kicked out of school for plagiarism.
