To write a scientific conclusion, summarize the results of the study or experiment. The conclusion can also list the study methods used.

The main component of the conclusion should revolve around whether or not the hypothesis can be rejected. If the hypothesis is rejected, the writer should explain what was wrong or which part of the experiment led to the rejected hypothesis. If the study supports the hypothesis, the writer should let the readers know, and outline how the results support it. It is important to be clear and concise when writing the scientific conclusion or any other part of the paper.
