Express yourself perfectly

A common question is asked to all the candidates. Why you would want to get in the course of literature and what your target is. Please refrain from saying the common things like you have feelings for this subject or any other well known quotes. Try to think of why you chose it and give it to them straight.

A good record in extracurricular activities

A bit of extracurricular activity never hurts so try to indulge yourself in the wring in the school magazine or some other literature based extra curricular activity.
