Another format of discursive writing involves presenting a balanced viewpoint on a topic. We train students in following English discursive writing conventions, which include appropriate start and finish, writing style, order of information, etc. then the candidates are trained to organize the information cohesively and coherently. They learn to provide precise and relevant answers. In the initial days of training we find that many candidates are not able to provide answers as per the expectations of the examiner, despite clear written instructions.
Our expert faculty members play the key role in grooming the candidates in writing different types of information such as point of view, argument or problem. Talking of the key skills to acquire, the candidates learn to provide general factual information, justify an opinion, outline a solution, and evaluate evidences and ideas.
