After review of reports, remarks are already given via mail, still some of you have not mailed final report. If you have not received any mail of feedback, do mail again or ask for feedback, probably your mail was not received with final report.

Some of common mistake everybody is doing in report take care of following points while making final report

Stick to format uploaded on UMS, chapter wise and

  1. Do not use too many colors in texts, Colors in Graph and Dashbord is ok, but not in text and in paragraph
  2. Font size and style should be uniform in whole report. (Fixed for Title, Heading and paragraph).(For standard formatting, look any standard book, font size and style and table type is always same in whole book)
  3. Do make your file look like decent, Do not make it too much of tacky
  4. Always use justified paragraph (Ask if not understood)
  5. Provide link for Data and introduction about data in 1st chapter
  6. Use same type of table everywhere for uniformity
