In Pakistan, students struggle with speaking and writing good English.

The students, sometimes are good at speaking English but they can't produce a good quality essay.

Another problem, which is faced by students is that they often lack in knowledge of grammar while some, on the other hand, are unable to write despite good grammar.

Today, I am going to tell you the universal set of rules which are used to govern a high-quality essay in English, the same rules are observed when your essay is checked in exams.

Besides this, I am also going to share some tips and methods for getting the maximum output.

The best thing about this article?

You will not only be able to write an effective essay but also you'll be able to check essays of other students.

The first thing in essay writing is that you have to understand what type of essay is it or what type of essay you are going to write.

Types of Essay

There are five (5) types of Essays. These are as follows:

1) Descriptive

It is the type of essay in which we describe something, it can be a place, situation, and emotional state, or it can be an object.

For Example, "An Essay on Railway Station"

In this essay, we will describe the railway station. We will talk about its atmosphere, its condition and all the things related to a railway station.

Such type of essays are generally written in the Present Tense.

2) Narrative

It is the type of essay, in which generally, a situation is narrated like a story. It can be a story-typed essay telling an event or a situation happened in the past.

For Example, "My First Day in School"

In this essay, we discuss our first day in school and we will write it just like a story.

Moreover, we will tell how was the day, what we observed, how did we feel? What were the events which happened there? Such type of essay is generally written in the Past Tense.

3) Reflective

It is the type of essay in which one describes his/her personal experiences, thoughts about a certain topic or a thing.

For Example, "Feeling The Fragrance of Flowers"

In this essay, the author will give his thoughts and experiences about the fragrance of flowers. He will share his point of view. Such type of Essays are generally written in the Present Tense.

4) Informative/Expository

It is the type of essay, as the name suggests, provides detailed information about a certain thing, place, object or a phenomenon.

For Example, "Poverty"

In this essay, we will provide detailed information about poverty, its causes and how does it come into a society? Such type of essay is usually written in the Present Tense.

5) Imaginative/Creative

It is the type of Essay, in which the writer provides his imagination or fiction. They are purely fiction and they are only the thoughts and imagination of the author.

For example, "A house in Heaven"

In this essay, we will imagine a house in heaven and explain our imaginations what we think about that house. How we think that house will be, and what are things which will be there in the house.
Note that every writer has different imaginations so such essay differ from person to person.
Such Essays are usually written in the Future Tense.

Rules of Essay Writing:

There are five (5) rules which are followed while writing or checking an essay.

If you follow these rules, then there will be no doubt that you'll write a very good essay.

The first step is understanding the type of Essay, once you have decided the type, the next step is following these rules.

1) Unity

The most important rule of Essay writing is Unity. The term Unity means one or single. It means that your essay will only explain one (single thought). It must not convey more than one thought or ideas.

For Example, I am writing about "Advantages of a Bicycle" I will only explain its advantages, I will not talk about its disadvantages or how a car is better than a bicycle. Samjh Gaye!

2) Coherence/Order

Coherence means the logical sequence, there should be an order or sequence in your essay. The information must not be provided haphazardly.

If you'll follow this rule, then there will be a flow in your writing and essay, will be such that it will keep the readers interested in it. 

I will share some examples how you can easily follow this rule later in the article. Abhi Sirf Rule Samjh Lo! 

3) Proportion/Brevity

Proportion means how much space or portion do you want to provide a part of an essay.

It is the really important rule that each part of an essay must be given its due space. Give more space and lines to important facts or information and provide less number of lines to least important points.
Note: It is observed very commonly that Pakistani students do not follow this rule and write more about unimportant points and provide very fewer lines to the most important points.
For example how much space for introduction of the topic i.e., 25% for introduction and 50% space for explanation and 25% for the conclusion. 

4) Style

There are two types of styles, formal and informal. The question here is 'which' style is to be followed. The answer is simple, it depends on the audience which is going to read it. 

If you are writing in examinations than you'll follow a formal style but if you are writing an essay just for your friends and family or for a general audience than you can write it in an informal style.

Do you know? I am writing here the informal style :D

5) Originality/Personal Touch

This is the last rule in essay writing. This means that you have to write the essay in your own words it must have your personal touch.

The what? Yes, if you write in your words, then it will be completely your essay. It is checked the same in the CSS exam, your essay is appreciated more than that you copy and paste the lines from the internet.

It does not mean that you do not gather information from other sources, you can get information from others or you can look what other people have written on the topic and get ideas from it. But write it in your own words to make it a unique and original essay.

Structure of an Essay

Now I will tell how to categorized an Essay depending upon its structure. An essay can be divided into three parts (3).  

1) Introduction

This is the most important part of an essay, it is the beginning of an essay. We start an essay by giving an introduction to the topic and what is the meaning of it.

Here the saying goes on, "First impression is the last impression"

You have to decide how much proportion do you want to assign to the introduction of your essay, you can assign 15% to 30% of the complete space of your essay to introduction depending upon the nature of your essay and requirements.

2) Body

In the body of the essay, you explain the facts and the support evidence of your topic.

You can provide all your knowledge about the topic in this part of the essay. You can assign the 50% to 70% portion of your complete space to this part of the essay.  

3) Conclusion

This is the final part of the essay, in this part, you satisfy the reader by providing the crunch of the essay. In other words, you provide the concluding remarks in this part.

You tell that reader result of the essay and what are your final results about it. Most of the time we say that the things above said are hence proved.

You can reserve 15% to 25% space for concluding remarks.

Make your conclusion effective and satisfying.

Final Guidelines for Writing an Essay:

Here are a few guidelines which will really help you while writing an Essay.

1) Choose a Topic:

 The first step is to choose a topic upon which you want to write. If you are sitting in an examination room, then you don't need to select one. Yeh Kam Examiner Nay Kar Dia Hoga!

2) Figure out the type:

The second step is to figure out which type of essay will it be. Will it be an informative or a descriptive essay?

3) Make a mental picture:

The third step is that you make a mental picture of the essay and imagine how many and which points you are going to write in this essay.

4) Note important points (Headings)

The fourth step is to write down important points about the essay. These important points will your headings or if you are not making headings then you'll have to write about these points.

For example, I am writing on "A Racing Car". So my headings and important points can be like this:
Speed, Color, Design, Style, Air Friction, Engine, Seat Quality etc.

Similarly, you can make headings or write down all the important points depending upon your knowledge of the subject.
Note: Think about all the points at this step by thinking more and more points about the topic you can control the length of your essay. If you'll have more points at this step your essay will be lengthy. Less points means a comparatively shorter essay.
Observe the rule of Unity by thinking about only those points which are related to your topic. If you'll think related points then your essay will automatically observe the rule.

5) Make an Outline (Arrange Headings):

You have made a list of important points that you want to discuss in your essay. Now at this step, arrange them properly to and make an outline of your essay
In this step you can follow the rule of coherence/order, if you'll arrange your headings properly, then it will automatically follow a sequence and there will be a flow in your essay.

Now, think again for a while if you are missing any important point if you are missing an important point then add it.

Start Writing Your Essay

Here are some of the points which you have to follow while writing the essay.

1) Making Introduction Catchy/Arresting:

The first sentence of a paragraph is called Introductory Sentence.Make your first sentence of your introduction to the essay an arresting sentence.

By making it a catchy sentence will create the interest of the reader in your essay.
For example, sometimes we read only the first sentence and if it is not interesting we simply close it.
So, make your first sentence very interesting.
Here are a few examples of arresting your reader:

Have you ever heard the word Human Robot?

Are you interested in a self-driving car?

Similarly, you can make many interesting and amazing sentences which will increase the interest of your reader and the reader will read your entire essay only because of an interesting introductory sentence.Make sure your introductory sentence is related to your topic.

2) Following the Rule of Proportion:

The Unity Rule will be automatically followed if you make related headings, and coherence will be followed when you'll make an outline and arrange the headings.

Now, you have to follow the rule of proportion while writing.

A typical example will be as followed:
Introduction 15%
Body 70%
Conclusion 15%

While writing inside the body, you have to make sure that you give more portion to the important points and less portion to the less important points. The rule of proportion is also observed inside the body of your essay. More space and lines to important points and less to least important facts.

3) Use Own Words:

Now choose a style (formal/Informal) in which you want to write depending on the readers/audience and start writing your essay in your own words. This will make sure that you are following the rule of originality.

Write your essay in the form of the paragraph, one or more than one paragraph for one of your heading or point.


Conclude your essay by making satisfying concluding remarks. Kya Samjh Nahi Aye?

Write your conclusion in such a way that the reader is completely satisfied after reading it.

For example you were writing that a bus is better than a car, then in the body, you will provide supporting facts and in conclusion, you can write as follow:

The bus has more advantages over a car and hence is more useful and better than a car.

You can note that this completely satisfies your topic and reader.Similarly, you can make your own amazing sentences.

5) Review

The last step is to review your essay if you miss any important point mention it. Read it again for spelling and any grammatical mistakes.
