When I write essays, I follow this structure:

Paragraph one

1 2 3 A

Paragraph Two

1 2 3 B

Paragraph Three

1 2 3 C

Paragraph Four

1 2 3 D

Conclusion

A B C D

Basically, say I write 4 paragraphs, I end each one of those paragraphs with a sentence e.g. A (as above) that concludes the points I have presented in that paragraph (a concluding sentence).

In my conclusion, I then restate each one of those concluding sentences.

Is this correct?

Thats more or less what I do. My teacher taught me pec (points, evidence, comment) which is when you make a point, give evidence to back on the comment e.g quote or statistics and then comment to say how important it is. I would also write an intro and my conclusion I would sum up the main points

Paragraph 1 should be an introduction. If this is a uni-level essay you should have a Bibliography after the Conclusion. I was taught the basic:

- Introduction: Tell the reader what you're about to tell them. Demonstrate that you understand the essay question.
- Body: Tell them.
- Conclusion: Summarise what you've just told them and explain how that answers the question. You should end with one or two sentences which actually do answer the question.
