Writing the Essay:
Basically, writing the essay has many sub points which are as follows,
First and foremost, write your thesis, which will help you prove your point by highlighting somebody’s establishments or failure. Starting with a thesis, makes the essay strong as it answers the essay question in a clear statement and it will stimulate the reader on reading the essay with more interest.
Secondly, the introduction should have the main points which your essay will make to prove your argument. The introduction and conclusion consists of 10% of the word count of the entire essay, so starting it a thesis then points on which your argument is based will start the essay on a very good note.
Write a first draft to the essay, it is not the final product so don’t treat it as such but include the introduction, the conclusion, the main points for your argument and try putting in punctuation and proper nouns that follows your outline. What is does is it provides you with an outline of how the essay should for those who don’t have it figured out, for those who have outline it states out clearly what are things you cannot miss have to include in the final product.
With the introductions done, it is time to move into the body of the essay, if the word count of the introduction and conclusion are taken out, it will give you exactly how many words you need to write in the body of the essay. Divide the body into paragraphs, highlighting each topic you make to support your argument. It keeps the reader interested if distinct paragraphs are made on each topic rather reading everything in one paragraph.
Divide the importance of the topic you are about to discuss, topic with more importance should be highlighted more than other topics. Highlight a paragraph which consist an important topic by going into details of the topic rather than writing about any topic which does not have that much importance.
The paragraphs should start with topic sentences which will make your essay more organized, well-structured and also reads well. The topic sentences help the reader to identify the topic that is to be discussed and understand how the topic helps you prove your argument.
There should be a link between the paragraphs so that the reader could easily understand the flow of the essay.
Write the final draft which includes all the main point, punctuations and edit the mistakes like grammatical error, spellings errors etc.
The conclusion is the most important part of the essay, what a conclusion does is re-state the answer to the essay question and highlight the main point which you have made to prove your argument. One mistake which is a common occurrence is, a conclusion should not have any new details which were not earlier mentioned in the essay it leads to deduction of marks.
