The primary research literature: whatever literature that you wish to take as a base for your research, you must have a balanced and in-depth view of the same before you actually go about carrying out your experiments. Always remember that the discussion section of your thesis is not just based on the results but it also draws inferences from the literature section. This balanced analysis of primary research literature should start early on to avoid premature blunders.

Conduct the designed experiment: be very specific about the procedures used during the experiments and conduct it with as much precision as possible

Analysis and interpretation of results: After you have collected the data, it has to be analysed and interpreted. All that you have done in the previous stages is going to help you create a good section here. Analysis has to include data summaries and statistical tests that can verify the conclusions. If you lay down the tables and figures carefully, you can write the results section more easily.

Write the results section: the results section is a blend of text and illustrations. The text component guides the reader through the key results that answer the investigated question. Whatever result is conveyed by each table or illustration must be told to the reader.

Draft the discussion: The discussion section is the interpretation of your results which also includes how your results modify and fit in with what is previously understood about the problem. Your insight about your topic would be far more in-depth after you have completed the experiment.
