We have reviewed a lot of writing services over the years, and we have found great, good, average, low average, and just downright bad companies. Over this time, we have come to establish a set of criteria by which we judge writing companies and this MasterGrades review is no different. We decided to produce this review based upon an increasing number of comments by users of our site who have used MasterGrades for academic assistance. While the company is based in the UK, most of our users are American and have had great things to say about MasterGrades.com. So we are on the same page here, these are the criteria we have used to research and evaluate this company: information found in the written content on the MasterGrades website, the types of services the company provides, policies and guarantees, prices, writer qualifications and backgrounds, samples of those writers’ works, any unique benefits, and, the most important factor, what actual customers have to say about the company. All that we have found points to a writing company with which we are impressed. Read for yourself.
When a customer first opens the MasterGrades website, you are presented with a form that allows you to insert the details of what you would like to be produced, and you will get a clear price quote. The same form will appear on the “prices” link. MasterGrades is based in the UK, so default prices are in British pounds. You can select US currency to get your price in dollars, and you will also pay in U.S. dollars too. The important thing is that the prices are clearly set based on the details you input.
For high school students, original writing prices begin at $12.99 if those students order two weeks in advance of their deadline requirement. College students will pay more, and graduate students even more. At the Ph.D. level, an original piece with an hours-long deadline will run as high as $47.99 per page.
The details in the calculation form have a drop-down menu for the type of assistance a customer may want. This includes not just academic customers but also job seekers and business professionals. And for all of these customer types, MasterGrades offers rewriting and editing too. A full listing is contained in the next section.
Most writing services offer some type of discount program. MasterGrades is no exception. All new customers can get a 15% discount during the ordering process. Customers who return for more assistance can get discounts based on the number of pages they accumulate. These will range from 5 – 15%.
Customers will get some free benefits that are considered to be worth money – a plagiarism check, formatting in most any citation style, table of contents, title and bibliography pages, and revisions to any final draft.
As we talk about prices, we also have to talk about the costs of those extras that are offered at checkout. If you need any of these, check them out and be certain that you only add those that you believe are really important to what you need. These extras include choosing a specific writer or one of the “top” writers MasterGrades employs. Other options are a plagiarism report, enhanced customer service, a second proofreading, and a one-page summary. Adding all of these can increase the price of your writing order quite a bit, so choose carefully.

Anyone looking at the huge array of offerings from MasterGrades would be impressed. Virtually every possible assignment that a student might face can be handled by this company. And if you don’t see it listed specifically on the MasterGrades options? No problem. Just contact customer service, provide the details, and get a professional academic who will complete it. And while the company’s main focus is on academic assistance for students, it does also offer other types of writing products. We are listing them her, separated into categories for easy scanning:

Types of Professional Writing
This MasterGrades category relates to those who are seeking career positions and includes all types of applicant documents. This includes not only resumes, CV’s and cover letters but also any essay-type writing that may be required of applicants in the recruitment process. The career department also provides editing proofreading of documents that a client has already produced himself.
Types of Business Writing
Business owners, managers, and marketers often use ghostwriters for a variety of needs, and MasterGrades has a department specifically for these purposes. Such offerings include:
- Copywriting for websites
- Blogs and social media profiles and posts
- Advertising, email, and marketing copy
- Reports, proposals, and business plans
Obviously, this is an impressive list. Other writing services have impressive lists too. But what we really want to see is quality. And we spend a lot of time looking into this. In the case of MasterGrades, this is what we found:
- The quality of the written content on the MasterGrades website is solid. It is organized, structured and well-written, using proper grammar and composition. This is always a good clue as to the ownership and management of a company, as well as the writers it hires.
- There are several sample products on the site too. We combed through a book review about Russia’s Vladimir Putin and a college level research paper on HR management in the nursing industry. Again, both were well-written, and, in the case of the research paper, resources were current and relevant.
- Users of our site have presented comments and feedback on MasterGrades, after using the service themselves. Without exception, these students spoke to high quality of writing, good communication with their writers, and great customer service.
- We searched for other customer feedback out on the web, searching some top consumer review sites. Again, what we did find was all positive.
Our conclusions about quality are that MasterGrades delivers top quality to its customers and they are genuinely happy with their experiences.
It is important that a writing company serving clients all over the planet use payment methods that are global. MasterGrades has taken care of this well. Any major international banking card can be used (e.g., Visa, MasterCard, etc.) and PayPal too, which seems to be the preferred method. Customers can also run their bank cards through PayPal, something that is safe and secure.
Worry about disclosing financial information is always on the minds of those who make online purchases. In the case of MasterGrades, not to worry. It does not process payments itself. Instead it uses a major processing company that has all of the latest security and is used by other large online retailers.
Every online writing company has guarantees – they would not get customers without them. Sometimes, these are included in written policies, and sometimes they are simply included in the website content. In the case of MasterGrades, they are found in both places.
- Qualified Writers – writers are assigned to customer orders based on a match between the details of that order and the educational and writing background of the writer. All academic writers, according to the company have at least a Master’s degree
- Customers will have access to their writers through a personal account messaging system. This is always an important feature, because you may need to give some more detail about the project or your writer may have questions.
- Privacy is important. You should be the only deciding who knows you are using a writing service, and you have a right to decide how your personal information is used. MasterGrades.com guarantees that your personal information is encrypted and that it will never be sold or shared with another individual or company.
- Revisions: These are guaranteed in a couple of places. They are free, as long as they do not change your original order, and MasterGrades promises to get them done quickly. If you want something changed, just give them the details.
- No Plagiarism: Again, this is promised in several places. MasterGrades says that all writing pieces are started from scratch only after they are ordered, and that they will always be original. What’s more, the finished belongs to you and will not be seen or used by anyone else.
- On-time Delivery: You are guaranteed delivery by your due date. If MasterGrades fails in this regard, you will get a partial refund and a discount on a future order
- Money-Back: there are situations that call for refunds, and MasterGrades outlines them in this policy. Take a look so that you know the circumstances that result in refunds, either full or partial.
Customer whose comments we have received or found all state that these guarantees are met by MasterGrades. Company policy obviously has practical application.
Is the Site Legit?
If you have not concluded this yet, we are here to tell you that MasterGrades.com is not only a legitimate business, but it is far more than that too. We have tough expectations for companies that we give high marks to, and this is definitely one that is deserving of them. It operates a clean, professional and transparent operation in all respects. It produces high quality and keeps is promises.
Too many to list, but here are a few that we consider to be the “big four:”
- Product quality is exceptional
- MasterGrades stands by its promises
- Pricing is clear and transparent
- Customer support is responsive
Tough to find, but we do have a couple of suggestions:
- Order pricing increases a lot if the optional extras are selected. MasterGrades might consider re-looking at these
- It seems counter-productive to promise no plagiarism and to say that this is checked but then to charge a customer for a plagiarism report.
To Sum Up
You will probably not find a better writing service than MasterGrades.com. It is among the finest we have encountered. The company is obviously committed to its clients, has a business model that reflects honesty and integrity, produces top quality, and is responsive when there are questions or issues. In short, MasterGrades delivers for its customers. We highly recommend this writing service.
