Academized.com ReviewVERDICT: UNRELIABLE
- Wide range of academic services
- Discount system
- Failure to follow the instructions
- Higher-than-average prices for papers
- Poor writing
- A low number of reviews from customers
- The writer had a poor knowledge of the citation style
Having ordered a paper from Academized, we can’t recommend this writing company to anyone. The writer has failed to follow important requirements, which automatically means a low grade. The prices are a bit high but the company should definitely improve their hiring process to make sure that the writers respect customers’ requests.
According to Academized.com, the company is a professional essay writing service specializing in writing a wide range of academic works, including research papers, essays, and dissertations. Even though the home page of the site claimed that the company has completed orders for 3,500+ customers, the testimonials section contained only 31 Academized reviews. In our experience, the quality of the writer supplied by their writer was quite low, and they didn’t meet our expectations.
I was in a rush and paid a lot of money to get a top quality paper, but I can’t really say that my professor was satisfied. I was asked to revise entire sections a couple of times because the writer at Academized obviously didn’t have enough knowledge of the topic.
Pricing and Discounts
Academized offers a discount system to customers. For example, a first-time customer can get a 15 percent discount for the first order; regular customers get 5, 10, and 15 percent off after ordering 15, 50, and 100 pages, respectively. We ordered one 3-page college-level – senior – research paper and used the discount code at the checkout, which is definitely a good way to incentivize new customers.
So, we ordered a research paper on gender studies and provided all materials required for completion. Although the writer at Academized has managed to produce the paper within the deadline – three days – the quality of writing wasn’t what we expected. The first and the most important problem was the fact the writer didn’t follow the instructions that we provided. This means that if the request was submitted by a real student, there’s a good chance that the professor wouldn’t accept it.
The second problem that we discovered is that the writer’s command of the academic language was quite poor because he or she used conversational style both in the body and the conclusion. The third problem that would have potentially reduced the grade was the number of references; we specifically requested not to go over three sources, but the paper we received had five. Lastly, we have chosen to use the Chicago citation style for the paper, which is a little bit more difficult to implement properly, and the writer has committed several errors while making footnotes.
To summarize, the paper required major revisions, which could be a major problem if the customer doesn’t have enough time left.
On the other hand, it’s also worth noticing that the writer at Academized used quality sources, managed to complete the paper within the deadline, and developed a sound thesis statement.
Writing Services Offered
The Academized website has a section with the description of the services, but we failed to find a comprehensive list there. For that, a visitor has to navigate to the ordering form and view a drop down “Type of Paper” menu. In addition to all commonly assigned papers, we also managed to find copywriting and resume writing services. The price for one page depends on the academic level and deadline, and varies between $12.99 for high school essays and $44.99 for super urgent term papers. These prices at Academized are bit higher than average in the academic writing industry.
