You will almost certainly need to make revisions to the content and organisation of your draft essay. You will also need to improve the organisation and style to suit your reader, a process referred to as editing. Once you have done this, you will probably need to read your draft essay again to check that each sentence makes sense, and to correct smaller points of grammar and punctuation; in other words, to proofread your work. The occasional grammatical error will not matter too much, but making lots of mistakes will reduce the clarity and overall standard of your writing. If you find you are making mistakes in only a few grammatical areas but doing so repeatedly, it’s probably worth revising the rules for these points so that you can get them right and improve the general accuracy of your language.
