5 Common Mistakes in Descriptive Tests with Solutions

Hello and welcome to exampundit. Here is a list of common mistakes in Descriptive Tests and how to overcome them.

1) Shortening of Words: Well, it has been a very common issue and
we edit them before publishing so that nobody complains. What exactly is the
problem? We have notice many of you write “Govt.” “Cos” “Cause” “Bt”. These are
not appealing, rather your essay will look dull, no matter what you have

What you should do? – Do not use these kinds of words. Use
government instead of govt, because instead of cause, companies instead of cos.
In this way, your essay will fetch more marks.

2) Punctuation Error: A silly yet harmful error is irregular
spaces, wrong punctuations. To make this clear, we are giving one example.
“SBI PO will have Essay and
Letters  . I cannot waste time will
prepare from tomorrow.” – Essay is in singular, extra space before full stop
and comma missing.
Correct – “SBI PO will have
Essays and Letters. I cannot waste time, will prepare from tomorrow.”

What you should do? – Focus on your punctuations, letters and if you
are giving unnecessary space. The overall essay will fetch you a lot of marks.

3) Spelling Errors – Another very common error is misspell or
typing error in case of online exam. Typing too fast is the main reason behind spelling
errors. At the exam hall, you will not get so much time to check each and every

What you should do? – Keep an eye while typing at home. Practice
and sincerity makes us perfect. So concentrate when you type.
4) Conclusion – While concluding the essay, many of you have used 2
paragraphs. This is totally unnecessary. As said earlier, your conclusion
should be neat, short and in one single paragraph.

What you should do? – Make your Conclusion simple, neat and short.
Your conclusion should have your view on the whole topic. It should not have
any confusion. You have to make it clear.

5) Understand the Topic – In the recent topic of Start-Up and River Rejuvenation letter topics, almost everyone mentioned points or stated the facts which were naive. In the start-up letter, it was not necessary to say that you are jobless or poor so need business because no body will back you up if you don’t have a solid plan or a running business.

What you should do? –

Understand the topic and stick to it. If you are running out of valid points, then don’t add naive ones. Its not about how lengthy your letter or essay is, its all about a strong message and to the point composition.

All the best.
