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




The Body




To provide essay with a good introduction, you want to make it sufficiently broad. Show the relevance of the essay here. Also, this is the part in which you should share some background information related to the topic. However, you want to be careful not to start your argument just yet. Towards the end of your introduction, drop a thesis statement (the main argument). Some writers also prefer throwing their thesis in the last sentence, but that relies greatly on your style of writing

The Body

The body is the term used to refer to the paragraphs that come after the introduction but before the conclusion. The overall length of the body of your academic essay is determined by the number of ideas you have to share. The details you use to back up your thoughts also have an impact on the overall length of the body. Make sure that you present one idea after the other, and then support them with substantial facts to convince your readers.

You can have about three to six subsections here, each of which is connected with a transition phrases.

The Conclusion

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.
