Academized is one of the most “known” UK academic writing services to my mind; that’s why I decided to try it out. I have searched for academized.com reviews but could not find a quality review. Here I want to share my own point of view to help you decide whether to use it or not.

Academized positions itself as an academic writing service. Here you can order all types of academic papers and other homework assignments in various disciplines, including programming and math. The design of the website is simple and plain. The text content is brief, but the website needs more detailed information about the service. For example, I didn’t manage to find a “How it works” page. Some pages are broken and it doesn’t add credibility to the website.
Summary. The general impression about the service is weak. Lack of information about the service make it less credible. If my friend hadn’t recommended this service to me, I wouldn’t trust it.
The website is quite simple, so I quickly found the “Order now” button. In the order form, you can pick the subject area, upload files, pick the academic level, and other specifications. If you want your paper to be written by a UK writer, you will need to pay 10% more to your order. The service picks the most appropriate writer by themselves, but if you have already used this service, you can assign the order to a particular writer for an additional price.
Summary. As for me, there are too many steps in the ordering process, so if you are in a hurry, you may be distracted with the variety of options.
Academized.com: Prices Review
Pricing system. The price for the order is calculated in the order form, so you can easily see how much you need to pay. The price will depend on the number of pages, deadline, and academic level. Also, you may want to receive additional services that will increase the final cost. If you compare Academized to other writing services, you will find this service cheaper.
Free features. The service proposes a list of free features like limited amendments, bibliography, outline, title page, and formatting. This option is good as some services may ask additional payments for one of these features.
Additional paid features. Academized offers you a list of paid features claiming that this is for “better grades.” For example, you can order an originality report to be sure that the paper is non-plagiarized. But are you ready to pay nearly $30 for this? Also, you can set the highest priority for your order or get a draft of your paper to be sure that it’s okay.
Discounts. The service offers discounts. For example, at the time of this review, the service offered a 15% discount for the first order. Also, if you become a regular customer, you can use lifetime discounts depending on the number of pages you have ordered. It’s great, especially if you plan to become a regular customer.
Summary. Prices are low, but you may need to pay lots of money for additional services.
Some words about customers support. On the website, you can find an online chat that requires your name and email, or you can make a call via phone. The service offers free basic customer service, allowing you to contact support 24/7 via phone or online chat. For $5.99 support managers will keep you updated with the order progress and contact your writer if needed. And for $9.99 the “super duper” specialist will strictly control the quality of your order and will make sure that your order will be delivered on time. I think these services are useless unless your paper is really urgent or the writer prepares your dissertation.
Summary. The service has troubles with quality customer support.
I have ordered an essay for my biology classes with a 500-word limit in the APA style, as for a 1st year student. I needed this essay within 12 hours, so the total price was $65.98. The service picked a writer for me, and the paper arrived at the time I specified in the order form. The quality of the paper was quite appropriate, except for some points that the writer had missed. It’s important to pay attention to this if you are going to order a complex paper with necessary points that need to be considered.
I have used an additional service: “originality report.” Unfortunately, I can’t be totally sure about the credibility of their plagiarism checker. It has shown a different degree of plagiarism when checking in Turnitin, but still, the level of plagiarism was satisfactory.
Some words about customer support. I have contacted the customer support representative via online chat only once and got a response after 30 minutes. My question wasn’t urgent, but I think that customer support should work quicker.
Summary. According to my experience, I will not use this service anymore.
I have a mixed impression of this service. Let’s see the positive and negative points I’ve experienced:
The paper was delivered by the due date and the quality was quite acceptable. The writer has considered most of my requirements but skipped some points. That didn’t play a significant role in the overall quality, but it made me think whether to use this service for more difficult papers that require profound research.
You can’t control the order without additional payments, and it’s quite frustrating when you use the service for the first time. You need to trust the writer and service or pay the mentor to control the paper quality. Also, if you are obsessed with anonymity, you will need to be aware that this service asks you to indicate your phone number during registration. And finally, the main page says that you receive a plagiarism report for free, while in reality, you will need to pay for this additional service.
To sum up, I can’t recommend this writing service. This review is based on my personal experience with the service and represents my point of view. The decision is up to you.
