Who we are

Marked by Teachers first started life in 2002 and was transformed in 2012, helping you discover what makes a great essay, learn from fresh examples marked by teaches across the UK. As part of The Student Room Group (along with TheStudentRoom.co.uk and GetRevising.co.uk) and reaching over 5.5 million students monthly, it's safe to say that we really do get students.

We're committed to providing the best resource possible, which is why we're constantly evolving MarkedbyTeachers.com to be a useful a site for students as it can be – and a trustworthy one, we submit all our documents to anti-plagiarism body TurnItIn. Between this and our recently added professional teacher essay assessments and peer reviews, we want to make sure that MarkedbyTeachers.com is your first port of call for educational inspiration.

We've got years of experience

You're in safe hands here at Marked by Teachers. We've been online for over 10 years, which (apart from making us feel a bit old) means we know our stuff when it comes to students. We've come a long way since our humble beginnings in 2002, and because we're dedicated to quality, we're trusted by teachers all over the UK – and Boris Johnson!
