How can I improve my conclusions in exam essays?

Conclusions are brief so you only need a couple of sentences, especially due to the time limit:
-Briefly summarise what you have mentioned in order to justify what you will conclude

-Your stance on the question. Say what you think the arguments you presented mean regarding the question. Try to be sophisticated and add interpretation/insight to your conclusion. You can do this by separating your arguments into categories (e.g. economic reasons, military reasons) and in your conclusion state what reasons where the most important regarding the question.

Note: Never add new arguments or facts into the conclusion since it shows poor essay structure and planning; you should have included this in your main body.

Example:
Why did the Reds win the Russian Civil War?

In the conclusion you would mention briefly that there were several reasons but that the arguments presented suggest economic / social / military (depends on your essay body) were the key factors in allowing the Reds to win the civil war.
