Excuses for Not Doing Homework

Dog Ate My Homework Excuse

Teachers in all levels of education, from elementary school through college, have heard excuses for not doing homework. Some of those excuses can be truly ridiculous, such as this classic: “My dog ate my homework”. Students may claim that they did the homework, but left it at home; or, that they don’t remember getting homework.

Whether a homework excuse works really depends on how plausible it is and what your teacher is like. Here are some excuses, according to an online article called “The 10 Best Homework Excuses”, that may work. The article is located at http://www.brighthubeducation.com/study-and-learning-tips/51072-10-best-homework-excuses/.

  1. “I stayed at my dad’s this weekend and left it there are my mom refuses to let me go back and get it”

  2. “I left my binder in my mom’s car and she’s at work across town.”

  3. “Grandma died” (Whoever uses this excuse should home that their grandma doesn’t actually did during that school year.)

  4. “I was really sick yesterday and unable to do anything.”

Most teachers are going to be skeptical when they hear a homework excuse. They’ve had to deal with a lot of students who don’t do their homework either because they don’t understand it, or they were too busy with other activities. Therefore, most teachers are going to look further into any excuse that you give them for not doing your homework. There are also some teachers in college that will not listen to any excuse you have, even it is a valid and truthful one.

There are valid reasons to not do homework. But when presenting those reasons to your teacher, you need to have something to back it up. For example, if you dog did actually chew on your homework, you could always bring the pieces of paper covered with dog slobber in as evidence. However, that may still not work because your teacher may think you just staged the entire thing.

Valid reasons for not doing homework include your house burning down and having to deal with an emergency in your immediate family. For example, a student at a local university may not have been able to complete his homework assignment on time because his mom had a stroke and was rushed to the hospital. The teacher believes him when he gives this excuse because he has documentation from the hospital to back it up.

However, when there is nothing that is keeping you from doing your homework, the best option is to just do it. Even if you get some of the answers wrong, at least you put in the effort. Some students may not actually do their homework because they don’t understand how to do it. In this case, they should ask a classmate for clarification or go to their academic help center for assistance. The tutors at most university academic help centers are knowledgeable enough about specific subjects that they can help point the struggling student in the right direction.

But, many students at your university likely rely on the academic help center. As a result, the appointment schedule at the help center gets booked up, and you have to wait awhile before a tutor can spend time with you. In that case, there are professional academic help services that are available. One company that provides such services is Prescott Papers.

One service that Prescott Papers offers is homework help. If you are having trouble with a homework assignment, you can place an order to have a qualified writer go over the homework for you and write up a reference guide that you can use for help in completing it. If the writer completes the homework, it should only be used as a guide for doing your own work.

Another service offered by Prescott Papers is tutoring. This is great for when you are having a hard time understanding a particular subject and are needing further help. You can send copies of your notes and class handouts, and give the name of the textbook when you place an order for tutoring services. Then, one of our writers will write up study guides for you to use.

Here are some reasons to use the homework help and tutoring services at Prescott Papers

  1. The writer that we hire to provide academic assistance to you will be an expert in the subject that you are needing help on.

  2. The work that is done by our writer will be completely original. There will be no plagiarized content.

  3. Your information and use of our services are kept completely confidential.

  4. Overnight and same-day orders are available.

In essence, it may be tempting to provide a creative and elaborate excuse for not doing your homework. But it is best to just tell your professor the truth and get academic help.
