This is the largest section and contains most of your information. In it, you will present your research findings to the reader. You need to organise the information into smaller subsections, and give these sections a heading. Make sure the information flows logically from one section to the next.
3. Conclusion ...view middle of the document...
Recommendations can be listed and numbered. Make sure your recommendations are realistic!
A reference list tells the reader all the sources you have referred to in your report. A bibliography tells the reader all the sources you have consulted, but not necessarily referred to.
Appendices are materials you have referred to which are not essential for the reading of the report, and which could distract the reader from its logic. However, they need to accompany it so the reader can refer to them. Examples are tables, graphs, statistics, diagrams, which have been mentioned in the report. Appendices are numbered, for referencing in the text.
