It happens that the student brings to the teacher a beautiful, profound, perfectly revealing essay, and the teacher wraps up the work due to improper design. It is especially insulting to receive such a surprise before the very test or examination, which is not allowed without a valid abstract. So the design of the essay – this is not a trifle.
However, there is nothing complicated in the rules of writing an abstract. Problems usually arise in freshmen, who simply do not yet know how to properly prepare the abstract (because they were too lazy to find out before surrendering). But this article will help those who did not take the methodology on the chair and thought about the design the night before the delivery of the work – agree, the prevalent situation!
Sometimes pale with the correct form of the essay happens in novice students and illiterate essay writers. Deciding to earn some money, a beginner student believes that it is enough to write a job, and is very upset when the customer with the scandal needs improvements: the design is not according to the standard. So this article, too, seems useful to the students.
General rules for drawing up abstracts
There are several types of abstracts, but in this case we mean the format of the academic work. This work, which can be called a reduced, simpler version of the course. Therefore, the academic essay is formalized in general in the same way as coursework and diplomas.
In many universities and even more so in schools, the design of abstracts is less rigorous, allowing for small deviations from a strict standard. Some departments have their own rules concerning the design of works, especially the title pages (so, in addition to studying the general rules described below, we recommend still taking the manual on the chair, sometimes special requirements are invented by the instructors precisely to check whether you read this methodology or not?).
But in general, it is enough to comply with the basic rules regarding font selection, putting down footnotes, numbering, filling out the contents, bibliography, title page.
Best of all, if you study the rules for writing an abstract according to standards that meet the standards for the design of more serious research papers, rather than writing essays. Even if a teacher is not of finding fault, redundant, these skills will not. And if you get a “bureaucrat” from our classification of scientific leaders, then the design of the abstract according to the rules will be more important than the content!
