Writing Conclusions

By Shane Watson
In Academic


Writing conclusions for our essays and research papers is the part that comes last, hence the most delicate. While writing an academic paper, the requirement is to make a strong argument on the basis of facts and figures hence there is only statement of facts minus personal opinions. However, in a conclusion you can allow yourself to detail whatever you have concluded from the study.

Points to Remember While Writing Conclusions

  • While writing a conclusion, conjure up a brief analytical summary for the thesis statement that you followed
  • Present the analysis from your-point-of-view and support it with the facts and figures already illustrated into your study i.e. data and review of literature
  • Interpret your results by keeping in lieu with the thesis statement
  • Discuss the implication of the findings
  • Elaborate and pin-point the areas that could use more research in future

Whether you are writing an essay conclusion or it is a conclusion paragraph for some other writing genre, remember that it is the essence of any study and should best reflect the analytical abilities of the author.

Happy Writing Conclusions!
