Now, what generally happens in the exam hall is that- we start writing in excitement on the first topic that hits our mind. However, this should be avoided. Generally, our mind gets excited to see anything that we might have read lately. Thus, it inclines our attention towards that topic. However, our initial interest in a topic doesn't need to be a hint towards our expertise on it. Thus, we highly recommend that you should analyze every topic carefully, and give a thought about your level of competency for each topic.
You might have chosen a few examples you want to use or have an idea that will help you answer the selected topic of your essay.
And it’s fine to write them first in rough! But even the best-written essays can fail because of ineffectively placed arguments. So keep in mind – 3 important parts of an essay:
Before you begin, give yourself some time to organize what you want to put down on the paper. The aim should be to spend some time planning and thinking. Don’t think it’s a time wastage as once you have planned it out well you can spend the rest of the time in writing.
Understand the topic well
In most cases, it doesn’t ask you to write down all that you know about the topic. It asks a specific question such as- Problems of A working woman. Here we have to specifically talk about working women and problems faced by them and not about problems faced by women in general.
Organise your essay
Introduction – body- the main line of argument- Conclusion. Make sure that the introduction and the conclusion are catchy and good as the examiner’s eyes will first fall on the introduction.
Don’t be repetitive
If each paragraph deals with the factors, points, or issues raised in your introduction, the examiner sees that you are fully in control.
Divide your essay into paragraphs
Divide the essay into paragraphs and make every paragraph catch the eye by beginning with a strong argumentative point that is linked to the main argument of your essay. Then you can go on to explain the point.
No need to use big words unnecessarily if you don't know their meaning and usage
At times these words are also used in inappropriate places. The essay should be easy to read. The points you make within a paragraph should flow from one to the other and each paragraph should link well with the next.
Pay attention to grammar, spelling mistakes, etc
If one’s grammar is weak, making short sentences will reduce the chances of errors.
Summarize your main points
Summarize and end with a clear and well-thought-out main argument. A strong ending will remind the examiner of what you have proven and show that you have been in control of the essay all the way through.
