    According to Professional CDR writers, there could be about 50-minute reasons for the title. Do not worry, this blog is only going to talk about 13 reasons for your CDR Rejection. This not going to be a blog that beats around the bush, but the one that nosedives into an ocean of knowledge straight away.

    1. Plagiarism: It is considered a criminal offence in many top universities across Australia. It is one of the critical reasons why your CDR might face rejection. Do not ever copy someone else’s work and claim it as your own. Be it intentional or not, it cannot be tolerated if checked! A CDR must be based on your own self, your own profile. In order to avoid plagiarism, go through samples, and other things available on our website. If you still have trouble designing one for yourself, let us do the job for you.
    2. Too much technicality: It is recommended to include a few technicalities in your CDR in order to impress the CDR. But including a bit too much of them might lead to rejection. You cannot, just cannot, boast your technical knowledge if you have it. Wait for the right face to face interaction to do so but do not do that in your CDR. In a career episode, you shall instead discuss about what your project, the problem and the approach to avoid the problem. In case, there is some math or rocket science involved, you are hereby suggested to be away from that shoot. That math thing is already hideous around the globe.
    3. Career episode: An engineer’s knowledge cannot be penned down on a piece of paper, but it still has to be done. The career episode depicts the skills that an engineer possesses. The EA says that the adding too much technicalities in your career episode would not be treated as it should be. While writing a career episode, one must remember that it is a part of CDR that is a piece of formal writing and collective nouns for all your technical skills are always welcomed.
    4. Word count: The word counts simply refers to the number of words to be written in your CDR. The word limit for the section that shows your career episode shall not exceed 1000 per career episode.
    5. Careless Organisational Order: This part talks about the hierarchy and the positions involved in the project. In this section, clarity is what matters. A limited number of well-placed words would look better than a carelessly arranged hundred words more.
    6. Lack of Creativity: Creativity is appreciated in every field of study and application. When talking about CDR, the creativity plays a great role in making sure your CDR receives godly treatment. In case, you are not creative, doesn’t matter how much quality do your words hold, but it might seem a burden to the assessor.
    7. Silly Grammatical Errors: Seriously? You are going to present your CDR to the assessor without at least treating it with Grammarly? I mean, come one! Why! Why let the assessor make a negative image of yourself? Well, in case you really are a careless person, it could be understood then. A CDR must take care of the duration, company profile, location, and the objective. When we talk about bullet points, do not do that. Instead, do it in a “Paragraph-ed” manner.
    8. Not Stating Enough: A CDR might end up being binned at the slightest glance of a non-outstanding supporting project title. The world wishes to be run by logic leaving almost no room for the opposite. Select a practical, and reasonable project according to your educational qualification.
    9. Too Broad: Stop. Did you check if your report has all the main elements without which a CDR report is useless? Did you? A CDR must include the following – Career Episode, Summary, CPD at least. Each of the above-mentioned elements play a distinct role in threading your CDR together. After all, it is your own CDR. Make sure you represent yourself right and full.
    10. Poor CPD: A CPD stands for (continuous professional development) which is irreplaceable an element for a CDR. It must have a formal study detail. It shall include the workshops, voluntarily responsibilities, conferences that you attended, etc. It should not exclude some vital points such as the title, duration, the place of training or conference held, and last but not the least the date.
    11. Multi-Lingual CDR: Wait, what? Do not deviate from English! If you could use the Australian form of English, it is even better! But for some international students, it becomes a hassle to do so. They can outsource their work to
    12. Mention Only Your Personal Experiences: A CDR is all about you, and not your neighbour. You must make sure that it stays that way. Do not talk about the team that once worked under you, or one above. Just stay put on your own experiences and not your senior’s or subordinate’s.
    13. Problematic Problem Statement: A problem statement clearly states the problems including the curbing measures as a part of your career episode. This area shall talk about your contribution while strictly adhering to the word count. Include the problems and the solutions to each of them in this section.
