This is the substance of your report. The structurewill vary depending on the material being
presented. Headings and sub-headings should be usedto clearly indicate the different

are essential. Use in-text citations. Charts, diagrams and tables can be used to reinforce
your arguments, although it may be better to include the more complex ones in an appendix.
