The word count for a page will vary depending on font size and type, margin size, and spacing elements (single/double space, blank lines, subheadings, graphics).
For a page with 1 inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font, and minimal spacing elements, a good rule of thumb is 500 words for a single spaced page and 250 words for a double spaced page. Using this as an example, a 3-4 page double spaced paper is 750-1000 words, and a 7 page double spaced paper would be 1750 words.
Assignments often specify a research paper or essay length in terms of words, rather than pages - a paper of 750-1000 words or a paper of 1500-1750 words. This way a student's paper will still meet their instructor's length expectations, regardless of varying font size, margin size, or use spacing elements.
When viewing an electronic version of a student paper in MicroSoft Word, the exact word count can be easily determined. Some research assignments require students to include the word count of their paper.
Also, clarify with your instructor whether the words on the title page, abstract (if used), and reference list count toward the expected word/page count.
Do you sometimes struggle converting words to pages ?
When university or college lecturers give you a 2000 words essay or 5000 word essay, you often want to convert words to pages without having to involve a lot of calculations.
Here is a full list of the most common assignment word counts.
Please note: Every high school, college or university has a standard page length. The most common are 250 words, 275 words and 300 words per page. These are the main columns in the table. The last column indicates the approximate pages for an single spaced academic essay with four paragraphs per page and no headings (based on font: arial, font size: 12, single-spaced).
To obtain the double spaced length, multiply the values in the last column by 2
Some of these essays can be done in one day and others in one night. It all depends on the writer
