Approach to Precis Writing for Bank PO Exams

Read basics of Precis writing here
  • A precis should reduce the lenght of the original passage by at least two - thirds.
  • Every important idea must be retained, preferably in the order in which it appears in the original.
  • Unimportant points, including details, illustrations and anecdotes, should be discarded.
  • A first draft of the precis should be written, then checked to see that it contains the main ideas of the passage.
  • Although you should be as brief as possible, guard against being so condensed that you obscure the point of passage.
  • Try to capture the tone or feeling of the original, particularly if it is deliberately humorous  ironic or biased.
  • Check the draft for expression errors, repetition or vague phrasing; then write a smoother final version.
