After all your hard work, it's time to tell others about your FYP or FYT.
If you are giving an FYP oral presentation, you have 40 minutes to explain your project, give a brief demonstration and answer questions from your advisor and the second reader.
Suggested time usage during an oral presentation:
- 20-30 minutes to introduce and explain the project
- 10-20 minutes to give a demo and answer questions
- The total time can be less than 40 minutes
- It's not a good idea to go over 40 minutes if another group is waiting.
If you are giving an FYT oral defense, you will be given 40 or 60 minutes to explain your research and answer questions.
For grading, your presentation (or defense) is overall worth the same as your final report, so take it very seriously:
- Advisor's grade weighting on the final report: 35%
- Second reader's grade weighting on the final report: 35%
- Advisor's grade weighting on the oral presentation / defense: 30%
- Second reader's grade weighting on the oral presentation / defense: 40%
(Average grade weighting for the oral presentation / defense: 35%)
Live demonstrations for Android apps can be done via the Android SDK or other Android emulators like these.
Live demonstrations for iOS apps can be done via the iOS similator in Xcode or other iOS similators like these.
For some projects, it may be necessary to produce a pre-recorded demo video, but be sure to discuss your approach with your FYP advisor.

After you finish your final report, you have a short period of time to contact your CT to set an appointment
for help with your presentation. You can ask questions and/or do a practice run, and your CT will try to provide
presentation skills counsel and feedback. He/she can also look at your PowerPoint slides and advise you on the
language and content. If you like, he/she can also help you make a video of your practice presentation, so you can see how you look and sound. Your CT can also give you constructive feedback.
