Can we use "surmise" as follows in the conclusion section of an essay:
To surmise my aforementioned thoughts, [a summary of the essay].
Generally, this statement is written as follows:
To summarise my aforementioned thoughts, [a summary of the essay].
Since surmise means deducing a conclusion from available but incomplete facts which are not sufficient to act as evidence. So, through this conclusion statement, I want to convey that from the ideas that I have mentioned in the previous paragraphs of the essay, I have deduced the [summary of the essay].
