Oxbridge Essays advert banned after misleading students
Share This Article:
Oxbridge Essays, a company that offers university students pre-written essays as a guideline, has had their ‘Definite Grade’ advertisement banned after they failed on their promise that the student would get the grade they paid for. The company advertises on their website that they “aim to provide the best essay writing services available in the UK" and that "this aim is backed by the highest level of guarantees of any legitimate UK essay-writing company.” With the ‘Definite Grade’ they “guarantee that you will receive at least the grade you order (1st Class, 2:1, 2:2). If not, we’ll give you your money back!” The Advertising Standards Authority has ruled this is as misleading as the company contradict this statement elsewhere on their website. Under their Terms & Conditions Oxbridge Essays say “the client agrees that the Upper 1st, 1st Class, 2:1 or 2:2 guarantees provided by The Oxbridge Research Group Ltd. in no way represents any guarantee that were the same written material to be submitted to the client's university or school then the client would receive that degree mark.”
