It is an obligatory requirement that you should calculate and present your financial ratios and performance indicators along with the tables and graphs. Your xls or xlsx document needs to be submitted in the Spread Sheet Section. 

4- PowerPoint Presentation (PPT)

You have to make sure that you do not increase your PowerPoint Presentation slides above 20. This is too, an obligatory document for submission. It is mandatory to have a fifteen minutes presentation with your registered mentor otherwise; your Communication Skills part will be a complete failure.
