Essay Writing Tips - Content Writing Tips

In last few years many MBA colleges including most of the IIMs have scrapped Group Discussion from their assessment process. In most of these cases MBA colleges have replaced GDs with essay writing. Students are given fixed amount of time to write essay on any topic.  

What is looked for in Essay / Content Writing?

  • Subject knowledge
  • Clarity of thought
  • Flow of ideas
  • Examples
  • Facts
  • Correct usage of grammar
  • Correct usage of words
  • A neat hand-writing

 How should you write a essay?

  • Always write in paragraphs
  • It’s not a natural but learned skill
  • Different paragraphs express different ideas that contribute to the main idea
A paragraph should ideally contain :
  • Topic Sentence: it is the 1st sentence expressing the main idea of the paragraph- Say what you are going to say
  • Supporting Sentences: they expand the main idea expressed in the topic sentence- Say it
  • Concluding Sentence: rounding off what has been said or a logical conclusion of the idea in the topic sentence- Say it again!!!

  • Follow a flow of paragraphs
  • Always let the first paragraph be an introduction to the subject matter
  • Expansion/ support/ refutation of the idea must follow in subsequent paragraphs
  • The last paragraph must have a conclusion of the main idea
  • There could be two forms of writing- Deductive and Inductive
  • You should have good knowledge of the topic to write about
  • Read the directions carefully
  • Recognize action words- discuss, evaluate, argue, comment etc.
  • Focus on the issue rather than peripheries
  • Choose words with precise meanings; avoid ambiguity
  • Do not use Jargon
