Writting a conclusion essay

Hi,
IELTS teachers often categorises IELTS essays differently and also give them different names.
1. For the opinion essay (Do you agree or disagree? / To what extent do you agree?), some teachers call this the argumentative essay, persuasive essay or agree disagree essay.
2. The discussion essay generally has the same name but some teachers include the advantage/disadvantage essay in this category while I like to distinguish it and teach it separately.
3. The solution essay is also often categorised similarly by teachers but don’t forget that this also includes a cause/solution essay as well.
4. The direct questions essay is sometimes called the two question essay but as it is possible to get three questions I prefer the name direct questions essay.
5. I haven’t come across any teachers categorising an IELTS essay as a narrative essay but no doubt there are some who do.
I know it can be confusing to have teachers categorising essays differently and giving them different names. I recommend you look through the IELTS Cambridge books 1-9 and see all the types of essays that come in IELTS writing task 2 for yourself.

The conclusion should match the introduction in terms of the ideas presented and the argument put forward. Sometimes you will find that the process of writing has changed what you have argued and so it will be necessary to go back and reword the introduction. Finally, the conclusion is not the place in your essay to introduce new information or new ideas: these should be in the body of your essay. Example of an essay conclusion 1 Essay Question: : Italy on the eve of 1860 has often been described as an unlikely nation. Why? Before 1860, only a tiny minority of the population believed that Italy could ever become a unified nation under one Italian ruler. Yet, despite this belief and the many obstacles blocking the path to unification such as differences and suspicion between the many regions of the peninsula, the lack of planning and common goals that saw many uprisings fail and the divergent views and politics amongst the men who fought for unity, the Piedmont region emerged "...as the nucleus around which the rest of Italy could gather" (Mack Smith, 1959: 17). On March 17, 1861, the Kingdom of Italy was proclaimed. Italy was no longer a geographical expression, it was a nation. reference to essay question
