CONTENT OF STANDARD PROJECTS

The need for student researchers to know the content of a standard project led to the writing of this article by the team of writers in the mzwriters crew following several years of experience and careful research. This article will educate you on what a typical research project must contain before it can be regarded as a standard project. So enjoy reading!

Before you start writing your project, your research proposal must have been approved and your study must have been certified fit for conduct by the supervisor, hence, there is no need to waste time again in doing the whole project. Even your supervisor would have directed the student researcher to commence the full-blown project-writing; starting with the submission of the opening chapter (Chapter One). Complete standard projects should contain five chapters (Chapter one to five).

Before the main project must appear some pages known as preliminary pages. The preliminary pages contains the title page, certification, acknowledgement, Abstract pages etc. this is usually written together with the project abstract when the research work is completed. The preliminary pages are usually numbered in roman numerals (e.g. i, ii, iii, iv…….). These are followed by the main work (chapter 1-5) numbered in the normal Arabic numerals (1,2,3,4 …..).
