When you receive this comment on your paper, usually referring to one section or line within the paper, your professor is saying to you that the part requiring deletion is not necessary for the paper to move forward. This comment is typically applied during the last stages of writing and revision.

Graduate students are the ones who typically receive this comment. In all cases, if a professor has placed this comment beside a section or line or whole page, DELETE the section. Don’t hold on to it. Your professor or tutor is an objective observer. He or she sees beyond what you have present within the paper. He or she sees the long-term implications. If it is not working, if it is not functioning as a vital part to your paper, then let go!
