Essays, reports and presentations can be required to be in a number of different formats: Turabian, Chicago style, Oxford, APA, MLA and several others.
Even the best work will be downgraded if it does not comply with what are often quite complicated and sometimes apparently arbitrary rules. Some formats suit a particular type of content: a lab report is obviously very different to a literature review and usually the type to be used will be specified. But that doesn't necessarily mean an easy life. You collect all your information but how exactly do you set it out?
No one wants work returned because they made a tiny error in presentation. Perhaps you ought to consider professional help from someone who is totally familiar with the demands of the formatting required and who is available 24/7
