Every assignment has a unique Reference Number i.e. Order ID (5-7 Digits Numeric)

Do I need to apply on all orders sent to me?

No, you must check before applying. Pick only those orders on which you are pretty sure to deliver the quality work.

How can I increase the number of assignments?

The increment depends on the quality of work that the writer provides. It is evaluated mainly on the three parameters:

  • Frequent availability of the writer to take up the urgent tasks.
  • Good quality of work and timely delivery.
  • Less number of reworks coming in the completed assignments.

We also have CSAT (Customer Satisfaction) score for our writers to analyze their performance. In short, more you have CSAT score more you’ll get assignments because of your quality work.

What is CSAT score?

Following is the explanation

CSAT - Customer/ Client satisfaction score. This actually is the score which helps in identifying the quality of work delivered by you. We believe in First Time Resolution, hence if there is no escalation raised by the client the CSAT becomes good.

In other terms if you will get less Escalations then also your CSAT score will be good.

CSAT1 - Percentage of orders completed successfully without any escalation from student.

Higher the figure - better

CSAT2 - Average number of escalations for escalated orders (Total number escalations/Total escalated orders). Lower the figure - better

Example - Mr.X, an expert has done 10 orders from 1st March 2016 to 31st March and the escalation details are as below.

Number of orders done by him = 10 orders

Number of orders submitted successfully without any escalation = 7 orders

Number of orders, student has escalated = 3 orders

Number of escalations, student has escalated under these 3 escalated orders = 5 times


CSAT1 = 7/10 = 70%

CSAT2 = 5/3 = 1.666666667

How can I change/ amend subject expertise?

In case of any change and amendment you need to raise a ticket on “My support”. Also, you may take a test of the subject you want to add. Basis on the review, we will be able to add the subject.
