How to write a Formal Letter | Descriptive Writing Test

Writing skills are an important part of communication and Descriptive Test (of English Language) will test your writing skills, understanding, analysing and summerising skills. Learning how to write essays and letters can be one of the drearier experiences for students, but it is also one of the most important. It puts all your knowledge of language and General Awareness to Test. By working on your writing skills you will become more capable of analyzing data, interpreting data, and thinking critically. This year IBPS has also re-introduced Descriptive Test in the Mains Examination of Probationary Officer Recruitment, so you must start working on it when you have ample of time.

Letter Writing

In recent competitive exams, we’ve seen letter to the editor and informal letters were the hot topics asked in the descriptive paper. While writing a letter one should keep in mind to write letters that get your message across without the reader calling you for clarification. Letters shouldn’t be verbose and usually, in competitive exams, there is a prescribed word limit.
Here is an example of Formal Letter Writing from the e-book:

Q. Write a letter to the SHO of your area complaining against the violation of traffic rules by the people. (WORD LIMIT- 150)

17-B, Sadar,
Nagpur

24th August 2017

The SHO,
Sadar, Nagpur,
Maharashtra

Sir,

I wish to draw your kind attention towards the increasing incidents of road accidents in our area. The major cause of such incidents is the violation of traffic rules and absence of traffic police on signals. People are in a habit of breaking laws. Everybody on the road seems to be in a hurry.
It is very common that many people talk over mobile while drive and also jump red lights. Over speeding is another cause of road accidents. All these have contributed to the increase in the road accidents. Pedestrians do not feel safe while moving on the road.
It is, requested to take immediate necessary action to check the incidence of road accidents. Traffic police may be deployed on every street to punish those who dare to break the traffic rules.

Yours faithfully,
Imraan Malik
