    Re: Correction of mistakes?

    Frankly, the "proper way" depends on the context of the situation.

    You can use the following phrases:

    1. Revised Errors
    2. Revisions (singular or plural)
    3. Fixed Mistakes
    4. Corrections
    5. Errors that have been Amended (you can play around with the tenses)

    I hope this helps!

    Can you give us a full sentence in which you would wish to use one of these?

    Re: Correction of mistakes?

    Correction of mistakes typically means that your mistakes have already been corrected.

    Error Correction refers to the process of correcting one's mistakes.

    You can use Correction of Mistakes for titles and headlines; however, other than that, I don't believe it's used anywhere else.

    But to answer your question: Yes, you can.

    It mustn't be used in a sentence... It's a heading to a work in class for schoolchildren....
