Writing Techniques for IBPS PO

Now, I will take you through the guidelines one should follow while writing an Essay. These are not really tips or tricks. But these writing techniques for IBPS PO exam will help you a lot to develop the understanding to perform well with the descriptive text.

Step 1. Write an Introduction that Grabs and Seduces.

Sure it is no easy task, my friend. The introduction is the window through which examiner will dive into your story. Create a smooth entrance for your coming arguments on the topic. Starting from your understanding of the issue establish a strong bond between words and knowledge on the topic. Below is  1 example:

Topic – Women Entrepreneurs in India.

The word ‘entrepreneur’ has mostly been synonymous with men. In the 21st century though, things are changing and many successful female entrepreneurs have emerged. These women are becoming role models and are flourishing in their respective fields. Their confidence and refusal to be dominated by men have inspired many more women across the country. These women have been acknowledged in their respective fields and have even received accolades for their work.

Look, how beautifully the introduction has not only paved a way for further points but also showed the proficiency on the crucial subject.

Step 2. Unleash the Unexpected.

Let’s face it, examiner are information hungry. So, the tired advice is not going to cut it. Your post must be unique, bold and eye-opening. Maybe even epic.
You also don’t have to go beyond just for adding shock value. Your advice must be authentic and truly helpful. But regurgitating old advice will not challenge you as ingenious and nor will enlighten the examiner.

Step 3. Trim Flabby words & Phrases.

Write what you mean as concisely as possible. Adding superficial words will reduce the word range. and hence you get less word to express your thought. Therefore, try to avoid the “extra words”. Here are few examples.

  • Education is absolutely essential – Education is essential (Absolutely is redundant)
  • Every Single person should love education – Every person should love education (single is redundant)
  • Due to the fact that learning takes time –  Because learning takes time.
  • Information regarding Women health – Women health information.

Step 4.  Avoid weak adjectives.

Don’t cripple your sentences with feeble phrases. Weak adjectives sap the strength from your writing just as nefariously as weak verbs. Use the best adjectives possible when describing nouns and pronouns. Few examples are as follow:

  • Really bad – Terrible
  • Very beautiful – Gorgeous
  • Very big/huge – Colossal

Step 5.  Start and End Strong.

Just as your introduction and conclusion should grab readers, you want the main body of your post to start and end strong as well. Every section should have valuable content. If each section successively decreases in value, the examiner will feel like your post is deflating. And their excitement will deflate with it.
