A. HIGHER DEGREE CANDIDATE'S AGREED PROGRAMME:

1. THESIS TOPIC:

...
Supply your thesis topic - either original or as modified - here.
...
2. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH AREA AND PLAN

...
This bit needs to be written by the student before the review, too. Preferably, this should indicate the "gap" in knowledge that you intend to fill (or are in the process of filling).
If you're wondering how much detail to put in, the gap on the actual form is 40mm by 160mm - how much can you fit into that space in say 9 point type?

...
3. ADDITIONAL TRAINING OR SKILLS AGREED ON

...
When you enrolled, did you and your supervisor decide/agree that you needed some extra training in some area relevant to your project? If so, tell us about it here. (To some extent, this sort of thing has been replaced by one or more of the 3 compulsory subjects (see Q.4)).
...
4. THREE COMPULSORY SUBJECTS TO BE UNDERTAKEN IN THE FIRST YEAR OF STUDY (usually filled in by Review Chair before or at meeting)

5. AGREED RESOURCE STATEMENT

...
When you enrolled, you and your supervisor should have discussed what resources, e.g. desk, workstation, software, maybe special hardware, you would need, and agreed on this. What did you agree on? If you didn't have such a discussion, the agreed resource statement will be negotiated at your first review.

6. CANDIDATE'S COMMENTS ON RESOURCES, SUPERVISION AND SUBJECT RESULTS

...
This bit gets filled in during the review. The candidate should think about it before the review, of course - perhaps by scribbling down on the back of an envelope answers to some of the following questions:

  1. Is your work environment satisfactory?
  2. Are resources adequate?
  3. Is supervision satisfactory?
  4. How often do you meet your supervisor?
  5. Are there any impediments to your research?
  6. Do you expect to finish in time?
  7. Are there any issues you wish to raise with the committee?
(Questions adapted from those provided by Norman Foo, with thanks.)
You only need to worry about subject results if you haven't done the subjects (and were supposed to) or you failed them (or maybe barely passed them - PhD students in particular normally get credits or better).
