Concession (admitting something that
might go against your argument)
your essay. Usually your concluding paragraph will summarise very briefly the main point/points of your essay but you need to do more than this. You can point out why what you have said is significant. You might discuss the implications of your essay or briefly mention other points which need to be looked at but are outside the scope of the essay.
