How to Write the Perfect SOP

by Seek Academy Training Institute

One of the most important criteria for getting admission into one of the top universities or colleges in India or elsewhere in the world is an SOP. SOP stands for Statement of Purpose and in it, you should be able to articulate as to what you stand for and what you want to achieve and why this course matter to you the most. This is all that goes into an SOP.


Generally, a typical SOP would consist of 400 – 500 words divided into 4 or 5 paragraphs. This is nothing but a basic essay. Seek Consultants provide SOP Writing Services and make sure that it stays true to your personality so that you don’t have any difficulty in the admission process.


Here are some SOP Writing Tips:-


The first paragraph should be about you, family background, and your education. The main focus should be on education in the first paragraph. The second paragraph should be all about your achievements. Here you should be highlighting very categorically all the achievements that you have done right from school to college days. Also, you should mention any projects that you have completed during your degree and any job opportunities you have had.


The third paragraph should highlight your skills. Every student has a different set of skills and therefore you should be able to articulate very clearly and carefully the specific skills you have. The key here is to stay concise on 4 – 5 skills that you have. This next paragraph should be all about the innovator in you. The admission department really likes individuals that have the fire to innovate something new. This also gives the admission department an indication that the individual is self-driven.


The last paragraph should be about your career goals. Here you can write about your long term and short term goals after completing the course. Also, you can write about your aspirations that you would like to pursue.


Many times people go overboard when writing about themselves. The way you write should be very composed and it should be absolutely factual. In case somebody asks you for evidence, you should be able to produce immediately. The admission department actually reads what you write and therefore, it has to be very factual.


Also, while writing, you should be able to maintain a storyline and each paragraph should be connected to the previous one. If the dots don’t connect, the readers will feel disinterested and the SOP might not get the job done for you. Every statement should be backed by an example if possible.


Also, you may be tempted to copy stuff from the internet but it is highly advised that you don’t because the admission department is used to reading a lot of SOPs and they can tell whether your SOP is a genuine one or not. Keep these SOP Writing Tips in mind and surely you will be able to create a good statement of purpose.
