The general assessment criteria cover the following issues: There is a lot to remark on the thesis on all levels, with deficiencies and obvious errors. The presentation of the research results is superficial, summarizing and enumerative.
The abstract is an important component of your thesis. Presented at the beginning of the thesis, it is likely the first substantive description of your work read by an external examiner. You should view it as an opportunity to set accurate expectations. The abstract is a summary of the whole thesis.
It presents all the major elements of your work in a highly condensed form. An abstract often functions, together with the thesis title, as a stand-alone text.
Abstracts appear, absent the full text of the thesis, in bibliographic indexes such as PsycInfo. They may also be presented in announcements of the thesis examination.
Most readers who encounter your abstract in a bibliographic database or receive an email announcing your research presentation will never retrieve the full text or attend the presentation.
An abstract is not merely an introduction in the sense of a preface, preamble, or advance organizer that prepares the reader for the thesis. In addition to that function, it must be capable of substituting for the whole thesis when there is insufficient time and space for the full text.

The structure of the abstract should mirror the structure of the whole thesis, and should represent all its major elements. For example, if your thesis has five chapters introduction, literature review, methodology, results, conclusionthere should be one or more sentences assigned to summarize each chapter.
They form the skeleton to which other elements adhere. They should be presented near the beginning of the abstract.
There is only room for one to three questions. If there are more than three major research questions in your thesis, you should consider restructuring them by reducing some to subsidiary status. Don't Forget the Results The most common error in abstracts is failure to present results.
The primary function of your thesis and by extension your abstract is not to tell readers what you did, it is to tell them what you discovered. Other information, such as the account of your research methods, is needed mainly to back the claims you make about your results.
Approximately the last half of the abstract should be dedicated to summarizing and interpreting your results.Abstract (Background statement) A review of groundwater remediation in use today shows that new techniques are required that solve the problems of pump and treat, containment and in-situ treatment.
