SBI PO Mains - Descriptive Test Preparation

Dear Readers,

Most of the students have been demanding an article on "How To Write An Essay". Well, to answer all your doubts, we would like to share some information that will help you build different parts of an essay. And we will try to keep it as simple as we can so that the Hindi/other language medium students can also feel comfortable writing the essay. This is no rocket science but one can easily compile their thoughts to write an Essay. 

Well, let us start with the parts of an essay.  An Essay can be divided into in three parts:

1) Introduction
2) Body and 
3) Conclusion

It is very important to stick to the motive of the Essay and you need to consider all the important aspects. Students, Please make a note that an Essay is not an opinion but a description of what you know about the topic. And to write an essay you need to have the view point having both negative and positive. Now let us have an idea for how to approach for writing an essay.

Step 1: Identify the Topic

Friends, it is very important for you all to understand what is asked. Without proper understanding, you may get diverted from the topic unintentionally. So, to start it in a better way, you need to ask questions to yourself like "Why, What and How". And whatever response you can think of, just write it down on the rough sheet. Once everything gets covered, you need to put all the bits and pieces into its place.

Step 2: Choose Keywords

You need to choose keywords quite wisely. You will get the hint of the keywords from the question itself. Suppose you are asked to write the Essay on "Brexit and it's Impact on Indian Economy", then you know what kind of keywords you need to use. The keywords emphasizes on the particular topic and build a better understanding.

Step 3: Introduction

Now comes the most important part of the Essay. The "Introduction" is the part which will leave an impact on the reader. This doesn't mean that you start writing catchy phrases or anything else. You just need to make sure that you don't make spelling mistake and any grammatical mistake in the sentences.

You have to keep watch of present, past and future tenses while writing the essay. As the word itself suggests 'introduction' means 'to introduce' or 'to make aware about something'. It means you need to introduce the given topic to the reader i.e. what does the topic means.

After Introducing the subject to the reader you need to frame the body of the essay.

Step 4: Body 

Body of an essay contains the aspects of the topic. You need to explain the factual concept that why did the event take place or what actually happened. Furthermore, you need to provide the positive aspects of the topic provided. 

After explaining about the positive aspects you can explain about the negative aspects of the topic, if any. 

Again, its not about your opinion. Indeed it is a factual description of the topic.

Step 5: Conclusion

You need to be very careful while writing the conclusion. You do not need to tilt towards any political, religious or any other side. You need to provide a conclusion that what can be done for furthermore advancement/correction etc and what may be the consequences regarding the topic. 

A conclusion should always be in the positive direction. There should not be a negative conclusion.

Moreover, try to use simple words and simple sentences and avoid grammatical and spelling mistakes.
