The next advice in this regard is that while solving the paper the candidate should divide his time into different portions .
First 35 minutes should be given to Question no:4 to Question no:7.
Then the remaining should be given to Q1, Q2 and Q3.
45 minutes to precise.
45 minutes to comprehension.
30 minutes to expansion of idea.
last 15 minutes should be reserved for revision.
More techniques will be given in the coming lectures.

I will be giving notes on expansion of idea as well for all the aspirants.
I have started my work in this regard and hope that you will find some good expansions and the way how to expand a given topic.
It will be certainly useful to all.
But you should read all the expansions in Rippons college essays and Exploring the world of English.
You will enjoy learning English with me.

I lay much importance on Sentence connectors.
What are Sentence Connectors?
Answer:
Once you have mastered the basics of correct usage in written English, you will want to express yourself in increasingly complex ways. One of the best ways to improve your writing style is to use sentence connectors. Sentence connectors are used to express relationships between ideas and to combine sentences. The use of these connectors will add sophistication to your writing style.
Sentence Connectors - Showing Addition
in addition, additionally, furthermore, moreover, also
High level positions are stressful at times; furthermore, they can be harmful to your health.
not only...but also
Not only are high level positions stressful at times, but they also can be harmful to your health.
in addition to, along with, as well as
Along with being stressful, high level positions can also be harmful to your health.
__________________________________________________ _______________
More connectors will be posted in the next post.
