What Mistake should be avoided while Writing SOP?

by Seek Academy Training Institute

Statement of purpose or SOP is a document that needs to be attached to the application as it is a requirement by most leading colleges in the 21st century. Many undergraduate and postgraduate programs require the applicants to give a detailed SOP of around 800-1000 words. 

It is expected that the students introduce themselves and also layout the reasons why they should get the admissions in the institute of higher education in the SOP.

The following are some of the mistakes to avoid while writing an SOP:

Last Minute SOP

Many students consider SOP like just another essay that can be written in an hour one day before the due date without any help. This is not the case as SOP is a very important document and it is a good idea to get coaching from leading SOP services provider like Seek Academy

It usually takes several drafts, coaching and a few months of practice before a quality SOP is written with the admission applications and it is a good idea to spend some time working on the SOP.

Weak Structure

SOP Services usually teach students about what all is needed to be included in the SOP and also the structure of the SOP. An SOP must have a strong structure and framework or it should be a good read for the admissions committee. Weak introduction and conclusions are common mistakes to avoid when writing an SOP.

Informal Language

Students have to appear professional and serious when they apply for higher education at a reputed institute. Using a local dialect and informal slang is not a good idea for writing an SOP. Informal language makes the SOP look childish and informal which also then becomes a reason why it is not valued by the admissions committee.

Exceeding Word Limit

An SOP is a short and concise document designed to convey a basic introduction and why the candidate feels they are fit to get admission in the college. The SOP writing format is designed in such a way that the word limit in the format is usually around 800-1000 words or two pages and writing a boring and long SOP worth many pages does not make sense. Long irrelevant stories have no place in an SOP.

Dishonesty and Flattery

It is not advisable to lie in an SOP because most lies can easily be caught by the admissions committee as they have experience in this process. Though writing in favorable terms about the institute is a good idea, over the top false flattery is a bad idea in an SOP.

 Not Proofreading

Seek Academy is a leading SOP writing service provider and they help students avoid basic mistakes. No proofreading is a simple mistake as there are grammatical errors and editing errors in any written document that need to be taken care of before submitting it.

The SOP is an important part of the college admission process and the above-mentioned mistakes need to be avoided by students if they want to write a good quality SOP to improve their admissions chances for various higher education programs.
