Finding quality project topics in Nigeria among graduating students can be a daunting task whether accounting project topics, insurance project topics, education project topics or even in the sciences like industrial chemistry project topics. It is important to note that in finding an final year project topic, students must be mindful of the type of final year topic they choose as this may actually make or mar research performance and ultimately your final grade. In choosing materials for your project, it is important to not the following before choosing any project topic.
CHECK IF THERE ARE ENOUGH RESEARCH MATERIALS FOR THE PROJECT TOPICS YOU HAVE IN MIND
Before choosing any final year project topic, it is pertinent to check if the said project topics are researchable that is another way of saying if the project or research topic has a lot of research ideas and materials you can work with. Most final year project topics can look good but may not have enough materials to do a good job so as to get a good grade.

Type the full topic on Google.com and see the quality of materials you get.
Good final year project topics usually have a lot of previous project topics, research ideas and materials that are similar if not the same with your final year project topic. Unless such topics are forced on you by your final year project supervisor, try as much as possible to avoid any final year project topic that has little or no research materials. This is because researching on an final year project topic that has little or no material will affect your research options and performance and thus ultimately affect your grades.
ENSIRE THAT THE REFERENCES FOR THE RESEARCH MATERIALS ARE RECENT
For any research work you decide to use as part of your final year research material, it is important to note that project supervisors usually look out for references not later than 10-11 years from the time you are carrying out your research. Most students make the mistake of using old references of more than eleven year ago. This can affect your grade and no student would like that.
It is therefore important to always check at the end of any final year research materials you want to use be it journals or previous work for up-to-date references before you can decide to use such materials. In developing final year project topics, old references of more than 10 years from when you are carrying out our research should be avoided at all cost as that could hamper your grade.
