  1. Approach in the exam hall Roman Saini


  2. . First paper at 9:00 am. Take your time and choose your topic in first 5-10 minutes. . Ask yourself 5-6 question which explains the central theme in details and write them down on last 4-5 pages (Cross them diagonally and mark rough work) . Move to writing rough drafts, keywords and key phrases relating to the questions . Now in entire essay just answer these 6 questions and you will always be focussed on the theme of essay without diverting


  3. My essay . Science and Technology is a panacea for the growth and security of the nation


  4. Introduction . A well written and insightful introduction would lead the reader into reading the essay with much interest and heightened curiosity whereas an apt conclusion would leave a savoury taste in his mouth which would lead to good scores in the Essay paper . Some of the important characteristics that make an introduction appealing are: Its relevance to the given topic It should be interesting and captivating . It should suggestive of the direction of the central theme of the essay. If possible, it should give a hint regarding the conclusion


  5. 1.Starting with a General Statement A General Statement followed by specific statements is very common way of starting essay. I would say more than 70-75% candidates start their essay in this manner. 2.Start with a Quote However the Quote should be relevant and should be used in a proper context. Around 20-25% candidates use this method to write the introduction of an essay. 3.Starting with an anecdote Anecdote is short story - it may be fictitious as well. But it should be relevant, moving and interesting. This is a novel way of starting essay. I used a fictitious but real life resembling story to start my essay this year.


  6. 4.Conversational Introduction Another way to start an essay could be through a conversation, a predicament or by raising a question. Thereafter this conversation could be carried further by explaining it or extending it further in between the arguments 5.Writing the conclusion itself in the introduction is another unique way For example if one is to write on 'Globalization & Indian culture', then introduction could start by saying - 'Globalization has corrupted my culture.' And in this context arguments could be extended further in the essay 6.Asking Rhetorical Questions Are we Indians really hypocrites?". This could be an interesting but difficult way to start an essay


  7. Conclusion of essay . Only towards the end: examiner would be giving marks to the essay 'a closure' = No, rather impart a 'sense of closure, to the essay. Ensured by supporting conclusion with a quote which amplifies the argument or by giving wider implications for the argument. . Arguments should not be repeated in conclusion and the tone should not be apologetic. Rather one should demonstrate decisiveness in conclusion, be assertive and positive


  8. Following are some of the important points that are generally rewarded in a conclusion. Conclusion should: 1. Show that you have answered the main theme 2. Show wider implications of your subject 3. Leave something in the mind of reader to think about 4. NOT be a mere repetition of the introduction 5. NOT be a two line statement as if there is nothing else to write 6. NOT introduce a fresh argument
