1. Never use these, even though other people do:
When you say "such as," "including," "like," or "for example," saying "etc." is not needed because you've already made clear that the list is not complete.
2. Capital letters are only for:
- the first word of a sentence
- a proper noun
3. Avoid adjectives that don't add meaning. That's another bad habit. For example, "contribute" and "contribute effectively" mean the same thing. How could you contribute ineffectively?
I hope that helps. Good luck getting into Sheffield!
