Important Elements of an Essay

An essay  is a piece of writing, narrated in a manner to present a truthful and vivid picture in  front of the reader. In UPSC, where the time is limited and the marks are counted in final merit, it is quite important to master the art of essay writing well in time. Here, 5 broad elements (5C formula) are listed (rest will be discussed during lectures). 
 

Essay writing is an art and so by the very definition can be learnt by practicing it correctly.

Increase Your marks from 80-90 to 140-150 – if you incorporate the learnings and practice you will definitely get above average marks. 
 

1st

Creativity

Truth be told, there is not a single and specific way to write an essay and for that matter GS answers too, what is more, important is to have an approach and keeping oneself open to ideas and creativity.

Thoughtful Expression: It is a kind of projective technique wherein your piece of writing reflects your thinking pattern, analytical capacity, decision making capability or, in nutshell, your depth in personality.

We strictly ask you not to have any mental block about Essay’s; do not mug up anything, as said by Edgar Rice Burroughs:
“I have been successful probably because I have always realized that I knew nothing about writing and have merely tried to tell an interesting story entertainingly”.

2nd

Coherent

3rd

Comprehensive

The final and often unstated rule of good writing is Practice, practice and practice. Practicing one’s craft is how one internalizes and perfects it.
So it would suffice to end with relevant thought: “Hard Work beats the Talent when Talent doesn’t Work Hard”.

 
Like many others , do you also face problems in writing Introduction , Conclusion and making Connections in the Essay. Then you must plan on taking the course.
 

4th

Capturing

A good piece of writing is the one which can keep the reader bound to it. But interesting does not mean a piece of fictional writing. You must try to capture the attention of the examiner in as natural a way as possible.  

5th

Centripetal
