You must write the exact number of specified pages.

Write less and your order will be rejected. 

Write more and you just wasted your time. 

How to calculate the words to write based on the number of pages

As a result, in academic writing, the number of pages is determined from the word count and not the indicated page numbers.

The number of words considered to be equal to one page varies from one writing company to another.

Overall:

In our example, the client wants us to write a 2 paged essay :

2pg * 300words = 600 words

We should write 600 words, right?
No!

There is something else:

You get a 20% wordcount flexibility. 

This means you can write 20% more or fewer words.

Correct word count: 600 words +/- 20% :

20% of 600 words: 20/100 * 600 = 120 words.

Max words you can write: 600 words + 120 words = 720 words.

Minimum words you can write: 600 words – 120 words = 480 words.

The correct word count for our essay is between 480 words and 720 words.

Notes on Word Count:

Ideal Scenario (most of the time)All the requirements are discussed and the word count is within the normal range.
SometimesAll the requirements are discussed and the word count is above the expected word count.
Should Never HappenWord count is within the expected range and some of the requirements are not met. Go over the word count if you have to.
