    I have done one of them
    There's 4 sections:
    design of solution
    solution development
    programming techniques
    testing and evaluation

    Design of solution

    Your overall understanding of what you are being asked to do
    High level Overview
    Pseudo Code

    Solution Development
    For each task:
    What you have to do to complete the task
    How you have done this
    Snip of your form and your code

    Full code listing at the end

    Programming techniques
    Which techniques you used (eg iteration, string handling etc.)
    Why you used the techniques
    Example of the techniques you used
    Why the techniques you used were better than other techniques
    How each part of your code links together (subs& functions)
    Variable table for each of your variables and their use
    How you made your prgram robust
    If you have completed all the tasks

    Testing and evaluation
    Tests you plan to do
    The evidence of completeing the tests you planned to do
    Evaluation of the project as a whole

    Thats all I can remember off the top of my head. If I think of anything else I'll come back. Any questions are welcome
