XAT Essay Topics are usually abstract type topics, which test you more at your analytical skills and how sound you are in presenting your opinion and view on aspects. To help you do well in XAT Essay Writing, we earlier brought to you the list of Important XAT Essay Topics, and today we bring to you Tips for XAT Essay Writing.

Tips for XAT Essay Writing

Word limit for XAT Essay is usually 200 words and could be upto 250 words in certain years. So, time is not an issue and hence you can focus well on the quality without worrying about the time. 

Read the topic carefully and determine what you have been asked to write.

Are you expected to present the pros and cons of a particular issue? Are you expected to present an analytical piece? Are you required to write an argumentative essay or come up with different prespectives vis-a-vis an abstract topic?

Once you have a clear picture, jot down the important points that occur to you. For example, if the topic is “Economic growth without environmental damage — a mirage or a reality”, the points can be:

  • If it is a mirage, how/ why is it so?
  • Technological advancement so far has always decimated scarce and precious natural resources
  • Greed ensures that imbalance between need and output is unchecked
  • Law enforcement is always behind violation of environmental preservation norms etc
  • If it is a reality, how/why can it be so?
  • Alternative sources of energy
  • Recycling
  • Stringent checks and so on

Now reorganise thoughts into the three-section format:

An awesome introduction:
Employ a quote, [only if it is relevant] or a generic observation pertaining to the topic at hand.

Supporting ideas:
This effectively is the body of the essay that is generally fleshed out over two or three small paragraphs. You can move from one paragraph to other by means of connectives such as ‘Furthermore’, ‘Moreover’ or ‘To illustrate’ etc. If you wish to present a deviation from the main line of thought or state an exception, you can use words like ‘however’, ‘but’ etc.

Examples will be the key to showcase your understanding of the topic. Provide those that are a function of your reading, observation or personal experience.

You must be politically correct and at the same time avoid wishy washy examples that do not stand scrutiny. 

Conclusion:
Wrap up the essay with a fitting finale, using connectives such as ‘ In conclusion’ , ‘Hence’ or ‘Thus’. Otherwise, however well written the essay, it will hang and have an unfinished feel to it.

Tick the important checklist

A] Cogency and coherence: The essay should have a smooth flow of thought and maintain relevance at all times. Moving back and forth will have a stilted effect.

B] Sentence structure: The word choice and construction of sentences should be apt and concise. Certain principles of grammar and usage must be adhered to.

C] Proofreading: Spelling errors are a strict no-no in a formal essay.
