Essay WRITING – Format

There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to essay writing rules. But however every essay has 3 basic elements which are IntroductionEssay Body and Conclusion. Lets us discuss in detail about each of them.


  • The introduction is what is going to catch the eye of the reader, So put  your main point that you are trying to reaffirm (thesis) in this paragraph.
  • Quoting something a famous person said with relevance to your essay would serve as a bonus.
  • Transitional Hook – something which indicates the reader what they can further expect in the essay. Having a transitional hook can be of vital importance to your essay. It gives the essay a definite structure.


  • This is the longest part of the essay. Here is where you state all your supporting points.
  • It can generally contain 2 or 3 paragraphs.
  • Organise all your arguments/main points in to paragraphs.
  • Give illustrations/examples for each of the same to indicate your knowledge on the subject.

                                                  1st Paragraph – include the strongest points you have.

                                                 2nd Paragraph – state all less strong points.
