Four reasons why you should study GP sincerely

1. Applying to Colleges and Universities

Let's begin with university application.

Immediately after completing A Levels, you need to apply for the Universities and Colleges to pursue your higher studies. What do they demand?

  1. Application Letters

  2. Personal Essay

  3. TOEFL or SAT or Both

All these requirements have one thing in common and that is good and grammatically correct English and sound vocabulary. How? Let me explain:

Application Letters

These letters may not as easy as you think they are to write. You should state your genuine reasons for wanting to join a particular university. You should be clear about what you are writing and not only that you should also be clear about what meaning will people comprehend by reading your letter. Certainly, you will need a good linguistic knowledge for this.

Personal Essay

As a kind of essays, they demand evaluation of your own. Again you need to maturely write your assessment of oneself, stating clearly the reasons for your opinions, explaining how your choice of the particular university best suits your ambition among others.


Both of these tests are centered upon English Fluency.

All these require your sound knowledge of English and Vocabulary. And what does General Paper require? - The most effective and fluent use of English language to express your ideas, opinions and arguments in the form of Essay. If you develop a good background in English then writing letters and essays are only the matter about ideas and opinions. Doesn't everyone have his/her opinions? Yes, they obviously have. But can they all convey them properly? No. However, if you study General Paper then you will be capable to do it quite well.

2. A Strong Base for University Degree (i.e. Undergraduate or Bachelor Level)

You won't have problem in understanding the meaning of the text and you can study the volumes of text that you need to study in Undergraduate level without much difficulty. I have seen my own friends having this problem.

Your sound knowledge of English language will be useful in your university education. As a GP student you will have acquired sound language skills like good vocabulary and grammatical accuracy which will make your further study easier particularly in reading and writing. You may have to learn technical terms and jargon necessary for your career but you needn't bother for the general language, grammar rules and what's the intended or implied meaning of the sentence.

You will be notable in Creative Writing. If you get good grasp at writing, that's the aim of GP, then you'll be great creative writer.

Similarly, you will feel the difference between those students who studied GP (or any other English courses for that matter) and those who didn't especially when you have to prepare your research report, thesis paper or perform any academic activities that involves writing.

And for your kind information, let me tell you that you have to write a lot of essays - certainly many more than you have ever imagined now - in bachelor level. The reports, research papers, case studies, analysis and theses which you have to compulsorily write in your undergraduate and graduate levels, are all essays of some kind. Therefore, General Paper is an important subject which is going to be useful throughout your undergraduate and graduate studies right from the beginning. That's why; you should not take General Paper lightly.

3. Supportive to those who want to become journalist, writer, and so on

If you are going to further your career in fields like journalism, arts, etc which involve writing you will have a competitive advantage in comparison with others. You will have sound language skills to comment and write posts or articles for newspapers, magazines, e-zines, websites, and blogs; and you'll be able to write any sort of articles fluently and maturely targeting the specific audiences. You will only have to work further to sharpen your existent writing skills to become a good writer. Therefore, the language skills are definitely worth learning now and they will pay you back for the rest of your life.

As you are required to research on various topics and later use your knowledge with your logic to create sound and effective arguments in your GP, you will have good Reasoning and Analysis Skills, sound vocabulary and so on which will be highly valued in your career.

4. Makes your 'reading' hobby more enjoyable - Supports other hobbies

Is reading books one of your hobbies? Many people like to read novels, novellas, stories, fictions, essays, jokes, poems, newspapers, magazines, etc in the form of pastime. However, due to the lack of adequate knowledge of English language they fail to understand the contextual meaning fully - thus, making the reading experience bitter. But, with the good language skills learned at A Levels GP classes your reading skills will be highly enhanced.

Are you still thinking?

Don't think much. The list goes on and on. So, better start to take this subject seriously and then start constructing your base for your future building. This subject is worth studying. If you follow me to the end believe me that you will end up thanking me spontaneously and without the feeling of second thought. You will really enjoy your mature and fully expert knowledge of English.

Best way to improve English in long run

Again, I have discovered two best ways for you to improve your vocabulary in a long run. These are the easiest way out to have a superior vocabulary, if my own experience is any indication.

  1. Read stories, novels, or anything that pleases you, i.e., essays, travelogues, etc.

  2. Start to create something (article) on your own. It can be anything from the narration of your past moments, your current encounter with someone which is quite interesting, your travel experience, the feelings you came across when you had won the football match, etc.

These methods are discussed in more detail in the vocabulary section. So, refer to that section to learn more about vocabulary and how to improve it.

In Conclusion:
"If you study GP sincerely in your A Level then you can be assured for one thing that you are going to harvest your 2 year investment throughout your life - because language skills are required in every stances of your life." - Prem Gaire!

Yeah, my own quotation! :)

Probable Questions for October/November 2015

(Image Credit: Unknown) A continuity to the Tradition: Like in the past, I am attempting to predict (so to say) questions that could show up in the upcoming October/November examination of 2015. Disclaimer First: These predictions are in no way scientific or really probable. Justification: However, these could be some topics you could brainstorm and practice upon, in order to prepare for your General Paper exams.

Consider the view that the key to good health is not medicine, but lifestyle

Image by Irina L from Pixabay "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, not merely an absence of disease or infirmity." - World Health Organization. This definition of health in its broadest sense implies that curing of physical diseases and abnormalities alone cannot earn us a good health. Can medicines go beyond curing diseases, to improve our health on the mental and social grounds? The medicines for the mental diseases, like depression, might improve our mental and social health to some extent; however, good health in its broadest sense can only be achieved through improved lifestyle.

Probable Question for Oct/Nov 2012

Disclaimer Notice First First of all, I would like to share something with you: I have tried to guess probable questions like this for four sessions with this one being the latest and in my past guess-works, what I have experienced is that most of the students blindly rely on them and prepare only on the topic areas listed here. And when the questions do not fall from the areas I have listed there they simply show aggression. One person wrote in my Facebook Group in a satirical manner that, “100% questions were asked from my predicted topics.” Now, read an article on another blog. Ms Adrienne de Souza writes how students get tricked by reading probable questions. She frankly says that her predictions have been wrong before , like mine! And I've always included "a note of warning/disclaimer" in each of the earlier predictions.
