Since this is just a round corner, so at this time you have got every section of the paper well. One of the PO instrument papers is a descriptive writing section.
In this post we will cover all aspects: question types, methods of preparation, evaluation criteria and some dos and sections do not.
Let’s take a look at the exam pattern first
The main examination includes the English language descriptive writing examination.
It is important to keep in mind that descriptive examination will only qualify in nature and the safe points in it will not be included for the final merit list. There will be two sections: essay writing and letter writing
It is important to address time allocation for the sections mentioned above. Since the essay requires time and more than one letter, divide the time accordingly. Apart from this, it is relatively easy to write a letter because it should be less and crisp, whereas in one essay somebody has to present different points and explain them or they need to be analyzed. It should be structured.
Although there is no fixed criteria, according to which the descriptive section paper is evaluated, there are some common things that are taken into account for marking. These are listed below
Content: Address the subject from a different perspective and cover different aspects. Also provide details, examples and explanations. They should firmly support their viewpoint
Formal requirement: especially for letters, strictly follow the prescribed format. By not doing this, your points can be reduced. For essay, make sure that the words mentioned above do not exceed the limit. Apart from this, the composition of essays in many paragraphs
Development, structure and persistence: Understanding and explaining the subject is the main criteria for evaluating any piece of descriptive writing. Ensure that you address each of the following during the evolution of the essay.
Grammar: An essay can be presented logically, it can have different types of interesting points, but if grammar is bad then all efforts to be creative will be useless. Create simple but correct sentence structures and express your thoughts effectively. Keep the following in mind:
Vocabulary and spelling: Do not worry too much if you do not have a good English command. It will be fine if you can communicate your thoughts and arguments in simple and effective manner to the examiner. Some advice:
Make it less and impressive: If you want to say “very good”, then say “Excellent”.
Also, avoid spelling mistakes
Important dos and don’ts
Take the right of time, for example: If the essay takes 15 minutes, then 5 -7-3 is planned, where you plan for 5 minutes, do 8 minutes typing and then for 2 minutes To finish any grammatical or spelling errors, read through the final essay. Make sure you get the time to read and check for any errors. You can choose to break the time and choose the one that works for you.
