Realising the inherent need of a Three Stage Learning Process for scoring high marks in the Essay Paper we introduce the following Stage-Wise Strategy.




Will comprise well prepared background material on important expected Essay Topics. Brainstorming sessions on the challenges of the Essay Paper. Course intends to understand the individual challanges faced in scoring good marks and helping aspirants tackle their vulnerabilities and transforming them into potential to gain High Marks.

Prepare yourself through the Thinking Buttons Strategy to ensure free and responsible flow of thoughts in the Essay Paper. Understand the SOCIAL, POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PHILOSOPHICAL, CULTURAL AND SCIENTIFIC PARADIGM OF EXPECTED ESSAYS. Enhance your Creativity to offer multi-pronged strategies in dealing with the conflicts and administrative challenges.

UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE OF INFORMATION OVERLOAD. We all suffer from information overload and are tempted to sway the examiner with our knowledge and intellectual prowess. Learn to avoid this biggest mistake.Unravell the dynamics of Relevancy of expression in the Essay Paper.

  • Realise that Structure, organization and closeness of the content to the asked theme is of fundamental importance. Understand the dynamics of structure and draw outlines and practice essays appeared in the last 3 years’ CSE papers.
  • The Primacy of Presentation “But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” Sentences and vocabulary of varying complexity are one of the hallmarks of effective writing. When you are writing, try to avoid using the same words and phrases over and over again. You don’t have to be a walking thesaurus but a little variance can make the same idea sparkle.

The Primacy of Practicing. Burst the myth that Good Essays happen by accident. It is recommended that you practice writing sample essays on various topics. Even if they are not masterpieces at first, a bit of regular practice will soon change that – and make you better prepared when it comes to the real examination situation
