I’m weak in General Paper, will this help with my vocabulary & grammar?

What you can expect from this book is techniques to write your essay, brainstorming ideas for exam topics among other valuable tips to help you ace your paper! The only aspect of grammar and vocabulary is in our hand-picked essays by ex-laureates where we’ve done a makeover of their essays before, and after. So, if you’re looking for solely grammar and vocabulary this may not be the right fit for you!

We believe the technique to write a General paper is far more valuable than just having a good set of grammar and vocabulary. Our step-by-step guide comes packed with how to brainstorm for your exam question, and the right technique to write your essay among other valuable nuggets of wisdom from someone who was in the same situation as you years ago!

I’m not yet in HSC/Grade 12-13, is still relevant for me?

Writing is a technique that once mastered can serve you value for a lifetime!

O Level/SC/ Grade 10 & 11 do allow students to opt for argumentative essays. However, argumentative essays remain the less popular option in the face of narrative essays at that level.

Yet! If you want to get some traction in starting practice for argumentative essays, grab the book.

If that’s not what you want, when the time comes, you can always lean on us to provide you with the right steps to take. To stay in the loop, subscribe here (don’t worry we won’t spam you), and let us take care of the rest when the time comes.

Is it worth getting the book even if school is ending in only 3 months for me?

Writing is a technique that once mastered can serve you value for a lifetime! Oftentimes, it becomes difficult to balance school life with extracurricular activities and tuitions – and we totally understand that (we too were once of your age 😉). And we forget that writing is a skillset that helps not just at school level, but also during university applications, applying for a job or just writing a paper in general. This book will serve you for life. We can assure you of that.

*Note that we post news stories by accumulating the volume over 1-2 days and pushing them all at once.

Book Contents

Does your book come with sample essays like Redspot?

Redspot contains more than 100 General Paper Essays based on past examinations questions. The essays have been arranged in a topical manner for easier reference. Each essay is presented with an Approach and a Comment. Our book teaches you how to write essays like those. The central focus of the book is not the sample essays provided. It is more about the techniques. We are against model essays – actively so! We do provide a couple of sample essays from high-ranking students. And have a before and after essay makeover. That's just because we are centred on the process rather than a spoon-fed end result.
