Before writing the SOP, pursue your interests that led to your decision for selecting the college and course. For instance, assuming that you are keen on studying BSc (Hons) Economics, take out the occurrences which sparked their interest in you to find out more about the concepts related to world economy and its applications in reality. Connect your objectives and how these fit into your decision of applying to the institute.

  4. Do not plagiarise to use better language, be as authentic as possible.
  5. The admission officials need to know the genuine you. There is no good and bad while detailing a SOP. Toward the day’s end, you should compose your own story in a convincing way to make it noteworthy.
  6. Try not to use an extremely formal or an extremely casual tone. The language that you use should be clear and convey what you are trying to say.
  7. Continuously have your peers, instructors help you audit your SOP and give input to working on the draft.
