How effective your essay is will depend on your writing skill. Different people have different styles of writing. Essay for application process and visa interview also popularly known as "Statement of Purpose". It must be written in simple and clear language.

Points to consider while writing statement of purpose:

  • Before writing, list of the points you want to discuss on your essay
  • Write as much detail as possible
  • Try mentioning some points which might be an example of some events that had taken place in your life. This example will distinguish you from other applicants
  • Skip unnecessary information
  • Write about your interests but it must be interesting enough to be read
  • Your essay must attract the attention of the reader
  • Conclude your essay with good conclusion
  • After you complete writing, read your essay on your own for several times to point out mistakes and to avoid common errors
  • Ask others to read your essay and comment on it
  • It will be better if you record your essay by reading it aloud to the recorder and listen to it once it is done
  • Write in simple and clear language
Try using these points while writing an essay. I'm sure it will help you.
