Default Preparation of essay

Now, to know about the preparation of essay writing, in my humble view, the very first thing from where to begin is to develop your concept of essay writing as very few people grasp it properly.

Some mix essays with story writing, some with paragraph writing, and some others only tend to do articulation without appreciating as to what are they doing. Having said so, the question arises how and from where to develop the concept of essay writing?

The very first thing is to read quality essays by English authors besides comparing by putting in juxtaposition Urdu essay writing with the English essay writing. Mere reading will serve no purpose, try to trace trends and styles of essayists; examine the quality of reasoning and the over all structure of their essays. Once you are done with this task which no doubt appears to be gigantic but it is not, as it needs to be done in a systematic manner.

Finally it is submitted that essay cannot be written without information but it is not all-important as the aim is not to show erudition. The aim, as I perceive, is to appreciate and delineate ideas."

1. Select a topic every day. Topic should be like some important event of the current affairs (islam vs west, enlightened moderation, Good governance, devolution of power, reforms in education system, rising oil prices etc etc).

2. Read the daily DAWN, collect information on such current issues. NOte down difficult english terms. Look for the meanings of those words in some dictionary. (it will help u improve ur vocabulary besides collecting some material).

3. Write in your own words, some essay on any topic, reproducing those difficult words, so that u may practise those difficult words.

4. Try to get ur essay checked by someone good at English Language. If u'll only go for ESSAY BOOKS, u'll get outdated material.....though it is also helpful but still u should keep ur-self updated by reading important topics from newspaper. Essay should be written such that :

1. Ur written material is to the point....don't include any irrelevant things, as the examiner do check each and every word (mind it).

2. No spelling mistake, no english tense mistakes etc.

3. Try using educated vocabulary

4. Do not go on for filling pages and pages.....Stick to the topic under discussion and try to touch each aspect of that topic.

Salaam,

You can quote in topics like Kalabagh Dam, Kashmir Issue etc. and they will assist you in getting more marks.

Whatever you do, be wary of the time-frame.

For judging yourself, just take a topic (you're well-apprised of) and start writing. See if you can make it within 3 hours with simultaneous rumination and writing.

Regards,

well,you can consult many books available in market by diffrent writers.
and more,you can visit kips coaching academy for english essays.
but the best way is to prepare your own hand made essays,will be more suitable than any ones.

Reading over the internet is as inexpensive in terms of money & time than buying books & Mags.

Some of the 'articles & essays' websites r full of poisonous good for noting essays.
