Tertiary level students’ errors in essay writing may lower grades as well as posing challenges to language teachers for checking scripts and providing constructive feedback. Importantly, students fail to join skilled global human resources because of remaining ineffective in writing. The paper tries to investigate tertiary level students’ common errors in academic writing and also gears up a discussion how to deal with it to ensure quality education. It will also reveal the writing problems through error analysis in students’ academic essay writing. The data were found from the carefully selected articles from different databases and a list of keywords also used during the search process. In the discussion, error analysis includes identification, classification, and systematic interpretation of the errors which are produced by the ESL/EFL learners. The findings may help out the teachers and students in figuring out why and how the errors are occurring and can be resolved. Different errors and corrective feedback were discussed in the paper through emphasizing the UN 2030 goal of quality education.
