    Well, if it's a formal report (allowing for exceptions to newspapers etc.) it should generally avoid first-person subject pronouns and/or employ the passive wherever possible.

    That is to say, rather than saying "I have considered...", it's best to say "The considerations [of...] have been duly taken into account", or "In consideration of...", or "The committee has considered..." etc. etc. Avoid saying "I" as much as possible, even though it's you doing it as the writer of the report.

    This is really nitpicking, and remember that the writing is only five marks, but it's a good skill to pick up on

    THE VERY BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE!
