Sections in final year projects you should never compromise

If you ever want to get a final year project procedure right  as undergraduates, you should follow up religiously. And Just to let you know; if you decide to compromise any part of your research project, good luck with that but there are certain areas you should pay extra attention to and I wish you don’t ever compromise it, it could drag you way back if your research turns sour.

Typically, final year projects of undergraduates comprise of chapters 1-5 . Some chapters contain very delicate information that precede the research proper. They are not meant to be compromised and I will tell you why. Come with me...

Objectives of the research (somewhere in the first chapter)

Aside your project topic and the background of your research, another thing that singles a serious research from the lots are your research objectives. However compromising your project objectives louds an error from the start. Why?

Objectives, just in case you forgot, is simply the to-do list of your project topic. You’re simply required to outline the goals your topic is meant to achieve. There is actually no point trying to manipulate that course or even copy from a source.

Research Methodology (chapter 3)

The Most delicate part of your research and yet the most manipulated; I can tell reasons why. The research Methodology of undergraduate projects are often complicated and sometimes with lack of understanding,  students feel lost at that point, the only route of escape is seek undue help especially when it requires statistical representations.

It is at this point in your research journey that you should outline all the techniques you will deploy to gather data for your research including data analysis strategies. So you can imagine if you outline a different thing here and present something totally different in your chapter (4) out of ignorance or sheer negligence.

Components of a typical project chapter (3)

  • Research technique ( the type of research you intend to adopt)

  • Instrument for data gathering( a matching instrument that answers to your research technique eg. Questionnaire)

  • Instrument for data analysis (tables, graphs, charts etc)

  • Research population (the people, things or place you basically want to research on)

  • Sampling size(a section of the population you wish to sample for your research. You are required to outline how you arrived at the figure you’re to use and why)

  • Sampling procedure( is it purposive or not, did you pick randomly or not etc?

You can tell by what you see, why this section in the research is mostly manipulated along side the chapter for. What I know for sure is, if you get it right at this point, chances are that you may never go wrong in your research analysis.
