Report writing guidance


Report Writing

Report writing can be a difficult but rewarding process, which is why you will get a lot of practice doing it before graduating! You will write two reports (one formative and one summative) in the Epiphany term of your first year, often about short experiments involving fundamental laws and phenomena, to get familiar with the process. In the second and third year, you will write reports about more open-ended projects that take much longer to complete (weeks, as opposed to hours). At Level 4, your final project report will be based on six months of work!

There are prizes at each level for students who have presented exceptional graphs in their reports, see the Graphical Excellence page for more details.
