This is just a preview of what is to come in college and beyond. The coursework becomes even more complex and sophisticated and more frequent.
Students who struggle with time management; students who struggle with content and skills in certain subject fields; and students who are too busy with part-time jobs, activities, and such will find it tough to keep up and meet all those instructors’ due dates. And when those are missed or assignments are poorly done at the last minute, grades suffer.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Today, there is all sorts of academic help out there, especially in the form of digital writing services – thousands of them actually. And if a student is lucky enough to find one of those companies that really “delivers,” he can get the help he needs when he needs it.
Finding that perfect writing service is another matter because they all claim to be “it.” They are not all honest, though, so it takes some careful research to find those that tell the truth.
Finding the honest ones is our job. On a daily basis, we select online writing services to investigate, conduct the research, and report out the facts in the form of review summaries. We know what to look for when students do not. And so, we will continue to do our sleuthing so that students can make good decisions when they need help.
This MarvelousEssays review is the result of our consistent process of evaluation.
Like most writing services, MarvelousEssays publishes pricing charts on its website. To get to those charts, students access the hamburger menu of the top left of the landing page. Clicking on “prices” will bring up some introductory content and then the actual charts. These charts are divided into categories of services, and students can get an initial cost estimate before other offsets are added.
We found MarvelousEssays prices to be on the high side. That is not always a bad thing, so long as there are good reasons, such as great discounts or such top quality that the price is justified.
We are offering a few of the pricing examples here.
- High school essays start at $12.99/page, but this is with a delivery date of 11 days. Prices go up from there. A doctoral student in need of an essay and whose need is urgent will pay as much as $67.00/page.
- Research papers at the university level are priced at $23.49/page if 7 days is the allowable deadline.
- Even services such as editing, proofreading, and re-writing are priced higher than average.
Three factors determine pricing – ordered service, schooling level, and delivery requirement. This is common for good writing services.
There are discounts. MarvelousEssays builds a new user discount into its pricing charts. And, if an order should exceed 30 pages, there are more discounts, from 5 – 15%.
Most writing services offer optional choices that are fee-based. MarvelousEssays is no exception. A UK writer will add 5%. Students can select higher level writers, abstracts, VIP customer service, and other options. Some of these are appropriate for graduate level students, but others should proceed with caution. They can add up!
MarvelousEssays prices are higher than average.

MarvelousEssays is what we call a comprehensive writing service. If it truly has a full team of writers who produce quality pieces, then MarvelousEssays could easily be a student’s “home” for his entire schooling career. So, we explored what we could about these writers and their production of quality.
- First, we looked at MarvelousEssays.com website writing. Grammar and composition were suitable with a few word usage errors, and style and tone are appropriate for the content.
- Second, we reviewed several samples on the MarvelousEssays site. The range of quality was quite pronounced. A book report on a single chapter of A Short History of Progress contained no thesis statement, was disjointed, and contained lots of grammatical and word usage errors. Other pieces were well-written. Writer quality seems to differ.
- We surveyed any of our site users who had ordered from MarvelousEssays and did get several responses. Again, the reviews were mixed. ESL students were very satisfied, as were most high school students. As students moved into college and beyond, though, the level of satisfaction declined.
MarvelousEssays allows lots of different bank cards for payment – eight in all.
Student payments are safe and secure. MarvelousEssays does not process customer payments. Like most writing services, it does not have the security levels to protect financial data. Instead, it uses two payment processing companies that have the necessary certifications and a good reputation among online retailers.
We would like to see MarvelousEssays add some of the new payment platforms, like Apple Pay or PayPal. Customers have lots of confidence in these.
MarvelousEssays does have guarantees. Students can find some of these in the Privacy and Terms and Conditions policies. There is also a Delivery policy, but it is useless. Here are some of the details:
- The Delivery Policy simply states that MarvelousEssays has a 100% success rate in on-time delivery. There is no provision for what the company will do for a student whose delivery is late.
- Privacy: This policy is simply written and does guarantee that name, email address, and phone number – required for registration and ordering – are securely stored and never shared. MarvelousEssays supplies every student with an ID number that they must use on the site.
- Revisions: Students have only 2 days to request revisions. They can extend this to 6 days if they purchase the extension for $2.00 when they checkout.
- Plagiarism-Free Products: MarvelousEssays guarantees that it checks all writing for plagiarism with its own developed software. One nice thing here – MarvelousEssays will supply a plagiarism report if it is requested, and there is no charge.
- Money-Back: The Terms and conditions agreement has a large section devoted to its refund policies. The “rules” are “tight,” and students should read through these, so they know exactly when and how to get through the request process.
Is Site Legit?
Actually, we want to know if the company is legit, not the website. And then we want to know if the MarvelousEssays website accurately represents the company.
MarvelousEssays is a part of a large company called Writology Ltd, located on Cyprus. It owns several writing companies and has been in business 2013. This means it has had time to develop a huge pool of freelance writers which MarvelousEssays has access to.
The MarvelousEssays.com website is a truthful representation of the company.
- 24/7 Customer Support
- Personal account allows direct communication with writer
- Personal information and bankcard information is protected
- Policies are written in simple language
- Two-day window to request revisions
- No recourse if deadlines are missed
- Samples and customer feedback reflect different levels of quality
To Sum Up
There are good things about MarvelousEssays.com. It is honest about its processes, policies, pricing, and guarantees. And there are students in certain categories who are satisfied with the results of their orders. We urge all students to read this MarvelousEssays review as well as several of those others we have on our site. We want students to find the right fit for themselves.
