Nevertheless it is true to say that a student with excellent grammatical standards will hold an advantage over a candidate who may excel in every other way. This is what essay assistance is designed to counterbalance.
Getting students over this barrier was one of the reasons I put pen to paper four years ago and produced a book called Write That Essay! At that stage I was a senior academic at Auckland University and a university examiner. For nearly 20 years in both course work and examinations I had counselled everyone from 17-year-old newbies to 40-year-old career changers with their essay writing. Often the difference between a student who might achieve a B-Grade and the A-Grade student was just some well-placed advice and direction.
