Writing a thesis can be very entreating to some students while many are completely overwhelmed by it. When you are a rookie the prospect of writing a long paper on something you hardly know about can appear to be daunting. You will have to sweat it out, practice hard and go through a lot of tips and tricks before you can master the art of writing the perfect thesis.
If you are starting out then here are a few tips that will help you write a good thesis:
Dig out the facts. No writing can be done without proper research. You will have to find out all the relevant facts and information before you can proceed to writing them down. It will go a long way in determining the authenticity of your work. While sifting through the information, take note of all the things you think is important and relevant to your paper.
Decide on a proper title. It is the first thing the professor will see and it is also the first thing that will create an impression on the reader. It is imperative that the title be a reflection of your work and does not fail to impress. It should depict the topic and also the angel that you wish to explore. It is best you write the title once the whole work is complete because the main point of your paper may change during the course of writing.
You will have to elaborate your stance in the thesis statement. It is generally written in the first paragraph of your work and it will decide on the direction your paper will turn. The statement should bring forward your views on the topic you are going to write.
Sub-thesis comes after the statement. It is the main work and through it you are going to substantiate the statement you made earlier. You will have to write it in support of the points you asserted. You may have to do it through experiments, interviews, using your analytical skills etc.
Once you have completed the main body you will have to cite the source of your information. Without the right citation there is no proof of where you got your information from. It will also mean that your work is not genuine and is plagiarized from other people’s writing. So always mention all the sources of your research materials in the right format.
