Highlight the sentences in the paper that you are specifically proud of and find out what you want to keep. Don’t just consider the negative points.

Allow your friend or family member to edit your paper and make any improvements. This will help you improve the quality of the paper by preventing plagiarism.

Read the paper aloud, read it sentence by sentence to check the flow of the paper, paragraph transition and any grammatical mistakes.

Stay relaxed and comfortable while editing your paper. You can take breaks if you feel too much pressure.
