TIPS FOR WRITING ESSAY
ORGANISING Your thought is the most important part of the essay writings. Spend enough time reading, reflecting, systematizing, arguing and finalising the pattern of your essay!
Title of the Essay
Author's name and designation
Why the essay? (Relevance)
Limitations, if any
Thesis statement (Main argument in the essay)
Counterargument, if any, and rebuttal
Proving the thesis Statement
Main arguments summarised
Thesis statement reformulated
Scope for further study, if any
Apt quote or question
The conclusion might look a bit similar to the introductory paragraph. In this section, make sure to restate your thesis because your readers might have lost it somewhere while reading the body. Also, in the conclusion, you need to create a summary of the main points your academic essay touches. Do not forget to remind the readers of what you think about the entire subject in discussion.
