Initial pointers:

The first important point to be remembered by candidates is that they should be clear about the points they wish to communicate and second important point to remember is that it should be readable and to-the-point.

Mental research is important:

Before actually beginning, you should first think about the topic well and identify the best points to cover.

Remember that the introduction lines and even the introduction paragraph should give a sunrise effect to the content. It should give a short introduction of the pointers covered in the content; however, it should not be too long.

Subheadings and paragraphs are important:

An essay can look impressive only when it has subheadings. When it is without any paragraphs or subheadings, it will give a picture as a raw content. So, remember to give short subheadings of what the paragraph talks about. The subheadings should be descriptive and they should have some connection to the main heading of the essay.


It is better to have a unified description under each subheading and when you can maintain equal description under each subheading, your essay will get a good appearance.

  • It is better to use short sentences all through the essay for easy understanding and for readability.
  • Also, you should be cautious about the language used all through the content. This means that it can be either in first person or third person.
  • After writing, it is better to go through the entire essay once for correctness of spelling, grammar and for conceptual accuracy.
  • It is better to ensure that the essay is not too much crowded with words.
