Thesis statement placed?

<p>I constantly read guides where it tells you to write the thesis in the beginning of your essay. But in my school I was taught to place it at the end of the introduction..</p>

<p>Which one should I use for the SAT?</p>

<p>I am sure that either one will work, if executed properly. Like you, though, I was always taught to put the thesis statement at the end of my introduction.</p>

<p>In fact, I did put the thesis statement as the last sentence of my intro for my SAT, and got a 12. Do whatever is most comfortable for you.</p>

<p>I put mine as the last. I got a 12 and 11 on my last two SAT essays.</p>
