There are many questions that arise in mind of scholars when they think of opting for external assistance for statistical analysis. Here we present answers to some common doubts that you may face:

Q1. Is it ethical to take assistance from an expert?
Yes, it is absolutely ethical, as there is no rule against taking help from a consultant. Many research organizations and scholars do so. Plus, we do not provide any ready to use solutions or results. We work in a collaborative and personalized manner.

Q2. Will you provide me some guidance for dissertation defense?
Definitely; we help our clients in such a way that they understand each step of the analysis and can interpret the results. Our team will prepare you for all the questions that you can face related to the statistical research part of your study.

Q3. Is it a common practice to contact the college or supervisor during the consultation process?
No, we do not do so. We believe that it is entirely your decision to let your supervisor or college committee know about any assistance that you are availing. We have a contract with you and will not breach your privacy under any circumstances.

Q4. Is there a surety that I will achieve merit for my research report?
Though we can guarantee flawless analysis and accurate results from the data that you send us, it is not possible to guarantee anything about the overall evaluation of your report. This is because we do not have any contribution towards the quality of the other chapters of the report. Moreover, the evaluation depends completely on the personal judgment of the reviewers.

Q5. Will your team also help me with writing the results chapter?
We will provide assistance for interpreting the results once the analysis is done and presenting it in the required format, after deciphering from the software used. However, we do not write entire results chapter, as our service is dedicated for analytical assistance.

Q6. How do you charge students for data analysis assistance?
Students are charged on the basis of time spent by statisticians on their projects. Since the payment is on an hourly basis, our clients can decide beforehand how many hours of consultation they require. In case the analysis takes more time, the charges will be transparent and strictly as per the time given.
